Premier Shockwave CEO and President, A. Michael Stolarski, Discusses Science Behind dermaPACE® on American Indian Living Radio

SUWANEE, GA, Oct. 9, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NEWMEDIAWIRE — SANUWAVE Health, Inc. (OTCQB: SNWV) and Premier Shockwave, Inc. are pleased to announce that Premier Shockwave, Inc. and the dermaPACE® device were featured on American Indian Living Radio during the September 24, 2018 broadcast hosted by Dr. David DeRose.

Mr. Stolarski was interviewed while at the National Tribal Public Health Summit at the Mystic Lake Casino and Resort in Prior Lake, MN, May 22 – 24, 2018. Premier Shockwave is the exclusive dermaPACE® distributor to the Indian Health Service (IHS) and Tribally operated healthcare services market for SANUWAVE Health, Inc.

Dr. DeRose began by saying he had never heard of using shock waves to treat diabetic foot ulcers. He had looked at some of the scientific photographs and found them to be “pretty impressive stuff.”

Stolarski replied that this was “very legitimate” and noted that the device was just cleared by the FDA December 28, 2017 so it is relatively new. He detailed the 336-patient double-blinded, randomly-controlled FDA study conducted without physician assisted closure and without the assistance of antimicrobial or antibacterial assistance which achieved statistical significance at 20 weeks with 100% wound closure.

Mr. Stolarski went on to say that the dermaPACE® has the potential to save the tribal healthcare system many thousands of dollars per patient by exhibiting significantly lower incidences of lower limb amputation and wound recurrence. The device is aimed at chronic wounds, or those wounds 4 weeks and older. Mr. Stolarski called it a “feel good technology” from both a cost and quality of life standpoint.

Dr. DeRose questioned the mechanism of action and compared it to other ways we “stress the body” to make it stronger. Mr. Stolarski explained that it basically creates angiogenesis to improve healing and both agreed on the analogy of stressing the body, or tissue in this case, to make it stronger or to heal it.

Dr. DeRose’s show is broadcast throughout much of the United States, not only within native American country. He asked how those interested in the technology could find out more and Stolarski indicated that anyone interested could contact him via the website at premiershockwave.com or by emailing him at mikes@premiershockwave.com. He noted that Premier Shockwave is currently the sole distributor for the Indian Health Service, VAs and Military Treatment Facilities, but that SANUWAVE Health plans to start rolling out dermaPACE technology to Key Opinion Leaders throughout the United States around October 1st.

SANUWAVE Announces Strategic Partnership With Premier Shockwave; dermaPACE® Enters VA, Indian Health Services, and Military Base Market; Revenues Expected to Occur Immediately

SUWANEE, GA, Feb. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — SANUWAVE Health, Inc. (OTCQB: SNWV) is pleased to announce a partnership agreement has been reached with Premier Shockwave Wound Care, Inc. and Premier Shockwave, Inc. (collectively “Premier”). The agreement will cover the Veteran’s Administration (VA), Indian Health Service (IHS) and Tribally operated healthcare services, and US Military facilities/bases (MTFs). Per the agreement, Premier will purchase an undisclosed number of dermaPACE® units to service these end markets and SANUWAVE will receive revenue from the sale of the equipment and a per procedure fee from Premier. The contract includes a minimum purchase of 100 units over 3 years and is expected to provide a high margin, recurring revenue as Premier rolls out its services. This agreement allows SANUWAVE to enter the market immediately thereby accelerating revenue growth by years.

The targeted market for this strategic partnership is a large market. The population of the VA and IHS markets combined is roughly 24 million people with 4 million having complications from diabetes. These constituents are served through health care systems which are made up of: 170 VA hospitals, 1,063 outpatient sites, 45 IHS/Tribal hospitals, 343 health centers, 111 health stations, and 163 village clinics in Alaska for a total of 2,295 locations. Premier plans to roll the device placements out to the top locations in 2018, with an accelerated ramp up through 2020.

“We are extremely pleased to announce our partnership with Premier. They bring to the table an understanding of both shock wave technology and government contracting. This agreement allows us to enter an underserved market immediately and begin rapidly introducing dermaPACE® System into the US market as a whole,” said Kevin A. Richardson II, Chief Executive Officer of SANUWAVE. “Our growth plan is to develop channel partners, like this one, put in place proper financing to fund product placement, and to work with Key Opinion Leaders to have the clinical support needed to further penetrate all US wound markets while having a strong reimbursement platform in place. This is one more step in executing our plan for success at SANUWAVE. The goal is to increase market segment by continuing to make healthcare professionals and clinicians aware of this technology as an option in their treatment arsenal.”

COL (ret) Patrick Sesto, DPM, Medical Advisor to SANUWAVE said, “dermaPACE® will revolutionize the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers. This is the first time a treatment modality has dramatically reduced the time to wound closure and decreased costs to the payer. The dermaPACE® treatment application is straight-forward enough that the physician can have their wound care nurse or technician provide the treatment, freeing the physician to see other patients. The promotion of circulation on a micro-vascular level coupled with the releasing of essential growth factors lays down a foundation for the wound to heal. In my 33-years of practice both civilian and military, I have never seen such remarkable progress with these types of ulcers. It will decrease dramatically the morbidity that leads to amputation and thereby afford the patient a higher quality of life.”

“We are proud to be able to serve the Indian Health Services and the Veterans Administration and ensure that both Native American Indians and Alaska Natives, as well as our country’s Veterans receive the latest and most advanced technology available to treat and cure diabetic foot ulcers,” said A. Michael Stolarski, President and CEO of Premier Shockwave, Inc., the Manager Partner. “The IHS and VA patient demographics are quite similar in that about 16-17% of this population suffers from diabetes mellitus (DM), and 3-4% of those with DM develop one or more diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) each year. In addition, the amputation rate of these individuals is typically higher than the national average.”

Jim Clare, COO of Premier Shockwave added, “Premier Shockwave is looking forward to working with the IHS Special Diabetes Program for Indians (SDPI) and the VA’s Prevention of Amputations in Veterans Everywhere (PAVE) program.” Mr. Clare added, “As the FDA study shows, the dermaPACE® will materially reduce the incidence of amputation and speed wound healing in the majority of patients receiving treatment. The treatment can be conveniently performed when the patient is receiving weekly wound dressing changes. We believe the dermaPACE® will prove to be significantly more cost effective than other treatments for chronic diabetic foot ulcers.”

David Anderson, Executive Vice President of Premier Shockwave Wound Care, Inc. adds, “Treating chronic diabetic foot ulcers usually requires a multi-pronged attack. The use of the dermaPACE® System will enable the IHS to treat more patients in-house, decrease the number of amputations, and increase quality of life for those DFU patients. The late John Ferris, MD, and Chief Medical Officer for the Oklahoma City area Indian Health Service once told me, “we (IHS) are paying between $17,000 to $22,000 per patient to outsource DFUs.” The dermaPACE® is a game changer and should save the IHS many millions of dollars.”

Mr. Stolarski added, “We have filed paperwork with the VA to get on the Government Services Administration (GSA) Schedule, which should be completed within the next 4-6 months; however, in the meantime, we are confident in our ability to place devices and receive payment for dermaPACE® services at IHS, VA and MTFs.”
