Specific details of the completed sale of Streamline to Skytron are set forth in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed today by Medovex with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
The sale proceeds will continue to be used to fund Medovex’s general operating needs, including ongoing development of its patented DenerveX™ System, which is designed to provide longer lasting relief of pain associated with the facet joint. Lower back pain is the second most common cause of disability in the U.S. for adults. Studies indicate that 10% of the U.S. adult population suffers from lower back pain and that 31% of lower back pain is attributed to facet joint pain.
Jarret Gorlin, Medovex’s Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We’re pleased to have successfully closed the sale of Streamline to Skytron. These proceeds, when combined with the additional $1 million investment made earlier this week by our Co-founder, Steve Gorlin, VP of Business Development, Jesse Crowne, and another private investor, will help complement our balance sheet and better position us for future growth.”
Medovexs DenerveX System consists of the DenerveX Rotational Ablation Denervation Device Kit, a single use medical device and the DenerveX Pro-40 Power Generator, both designed to be less invasive with faster recovery time than current surgical treatment options. It consists of two procedures combined into one device and is expected to provide for a longer lasting treatment solution while offering potential savings to the health care system. DenerveX System is not yet CE marked or FDA cleared and is not yet commercially available.
Medovex was formed to acquire and develop a diversified portfolio of potentially ground breaking medical technology products. Criteria for selection include those products with potential for significant improvement in the quality of patient care combined with cost effectiveness. The company’s first pipeline product, the DenerveX device, is intended to provide long lasting relief from pain associated with facet joint syndrome at significantly less cost than currently available options.
