SAN DIEGO, Aug. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- AVACEN Medical (AVACEN) announced partnering with Morulaa HealthTech of Chennai, India to introduce its FDA-cleared AVACEN 100, Class II medical device, in India for treating the joint pain associated with Arthritis which is currently being used in the USA.
According to the World Health Organization, Arthritis affects approximately 200 million people in India. This prevalence is higher than many well-known diseases such as diabetes and cancer. This has a devastating impact on those who suffer from the arthritis and their personal support systems. In addition, arthritis imposes a large economic burden on public and private healthcare providers.
AVACEN recently received CE (Conformité Européenne) Mark approval to market the AVACEN 100 to the European Union's 28 member countries for treating the joint pain associated with Arthritis. AVACEN believes this is the first time a medical device has been approved for treating whole-body arthritis pain.
Currently used in the USA the AVACEN 100 uses an entirely new concept to treat Arthritis pain. It noninvasively and safely infuses heat into the circulatory system forcing the body to dilate peripheral capillaries to radiate off this excess heat.
AVACEN Medical CEO Thomas Muehlbauer described the AVACEN 100 as "the only medical device on the market today able to provide non-invasive, whole-body treatment, using a single point of contact. It is the ideal drug-free and safe alternative for rapid relief of arthritis pain from the inside". Muehlbauer added, "With approximately 2 million safe treatments, we frequently hear reports dramatic results such as being able to return to playing piano, gardening, and chopping vegetables. Even gnarled hand joints have been reported to disappear."
