Dr. Deepak Kotak, BioElectronics Executive Vice President, said: "Providing effective analgesia and a reduced need for non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and opioids is inherently safer, better tolerated and more cost-effective, particularly in an aging population. We are delighted that after evaluation in the clinic, B. Braun recognized the utility and broad application of RecoveryRx® technology in orthopaedics."
The companies also stated, as part of their working relationship, that B.
