HOUSTON, May 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Soliton, Inc., (Nasdaq: SOLY) ("Soliton" or the "Company"), a medical device company with a novel and proprietary platform technology licensed from The University of Texas on behalf of the MD Anderson Cancer Center ("MD Anderson"), today announced that its manufacturing partner has delivered the first single-use cartridges capable of delivering the therapy targeting cellulite reduction.
The cartridge attaches to the treatment head and is designed to be used for a single patient cellulite treatment and then replaced. The cartridge is capable of delivering higher-powered acoustic pulses at greater depths than the Company's tattoo removal cartridge, and both cartridges can be used with the same higher-powered pulse generating console, creating a true platform technology with a range of potential uses in the practitioner's office. Neither the cartridge nor the device has been cleared by the FDA.
"We are very enthusiastic about the flexibility that our interchangeable treatment heads will bring to the practitioners that partner with us for the treatment of cellulite reduction and tattoo removal," commented Dr. Chris Capelli, President, CEO and co-founder of Soliton. "Our therapy will be delivered through single-use cartridges that are designed to be used for one patient treatment. Once our device is cleared by the FDA, we expect to deliver a recurring revenue stream and drive top-line growth for the Company."
Dr. Capelli added: "We believe that this recurring revenue model will be readily adopted by the marketplace as other aesthetic technologies have led the way with pay-per-use models. We believe practitioners will be enthusiastic about our technology that, upon FDA clearance, could be used across multiple indications."
