DENVER, July 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Nimbus Concepts, LLC today announces the hiring of Clifford Jack as Chairman and CEO of the company. In addition to running the day to day operations, Mr. Jack will be making a material investment in the firm.
Nimbus Concepts, LLC is a medical device company focused on developing transformative technology in the area of Radiofrequency Ablation. Nimbus entered the market in 2012 with introduction of the World's first (FDA and CE Mark approved) Multi-tined Expandable Radiofrequency (RF) device specifically designed to meet the needs of the interventional pain management market. The initial embodiment of their patent pending technology is a percutaneous disposable electrode designed to provide optimal lesion geometry for treating spinal, and select orthopedic pain syndromes. Since introduction thousands of cases have been performed world-wide supporting the safety and efficacy of the device. Scientific studies accomplished by the company pre-launch "set a new standard in benchmarking for a RF device" according to Dr. Adnan Al Kaisy, clinical lead and consultant in pain medicine at Guy's and St Thomas' hospital in London speaking at the The 31st Annual European Society of Regional Anaesthesia and Pain Therapy Congress. Research presented by Canadian Pain Specialist Dr. Robert Burnham at the 2015 Spine Intervention Society annual meeting documented 50% reduction in the Operating Room time required to perform a common spinal procedure when the Nimbus RF cannula was used versus conventional technology. "Since inception, Nimbus Concepts has been committed to developing and introducing improved technology and techniques to the field of RF ablation," said Dr. Robert Wright founder and chief science officer of Nimbus Concepts. "We believe that our device platform allows for a notable improvement in success following thermal neuroablation procedures for pain management. Various RF technologies designed to increase procedural efficiency and safety, decrease medical cost, and provide high quality durable pain relief are in development, and the roll out of these devices will be greatly accelerated under Clifford Jack's leadership." He adds, "Attracting a seasoned executive like Cliff positions the company to take advantage of our superior technology in order to significantly grow the firm in the US as well as abroad. The capital infusion will also allow us to accelerate delivering next generation disruptive technology in the broad field of thermal ablation."
Dr. Wright will transition into active Chief Science Officer role and is pleased to have Dr. Aaron Calodney, a key thought leader in the field of Pain Medicine and initial investor in Nimbus Concepts, LLC commit to active collaboration in future device development. "The Nimbus Multi-Tined Expandable Electrode is simple, elegant, and extremely useful, particularly in the complex areas of the sacroiliac joint, thoracic spine, and the upper cervical spine, I couldn't imagine my practice without it. I am excited to be part of the bright future of this company," said Dr. Calodney. Dr. Calodney is joined on the medical advisory panel by interventional pain management pioneer Dr. Richard Derby, and expert clinician and researcher Dr. Scott Bainbridge.
