MedicaMetrix raises funds to commence commercialization of ProstaMetrix device
BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS (August 3, 2020) – MedicaMetrix, LLC, an innovative medical device company announced today the purchase of an IV securement device invented by Dr. Daniel E. Larkin. Dr. Larkin will also join the company as Director, Medical Innovation bringing his wealth of medical experience. Dr. Larkin is a family medicine doctor in Saint Paul, Minnesota and is affiliated with multiple hospitals in the area.
Dr. Larkin’s IV securement device addresses the need for a safer more systemized process to better manage the infusion site, providing patients maximum comfort and improved quality of care delivery. It does this by reliably stabilizing the IV catheter hub while creating a standard method to organize the infusion tubing.
“We are delighted to welcome Dan to our team and to add his IV securement device to our product portfolio,” said Satish Vankayalapati, Chairman of MedicaMetrix.
“Dan’s IV securement device promises to simplify, stabilize and secure IV catheter access and site management”, said Robert Rudelius, MedicaMetrix CEO. “Our goal is to complete clinical trials and launch the product first quarter 2021.”
MedicaMetrix develops innovative technologies and device solutions that transform the healthcare status quo, leading to better medical outcomes, streamlined care and enhanced patient experience.
We are leading the development of a new paradigm that transforms the diagnosis, treatment, and management of prostate health by filling the gap between PSA testing and imaging / biopsies. The ProstaMetrix system is a minimally invasive medical device designed to accurately measure the volume of the prostate gland early in the diagnostic process. ProstaMetrix helps physicians assess a patient’s prostate status to better plan and monitor diagnostic procedures, treatments, drug therapies, and guide recommendations for active surveillance versus prostate biopsies.
MedicaMetrix is planning on releasing a number of devices including our SureSet™ Securement device, which secures the catheter hub and infusion tube with a single site bandage and organizes the tubing for easy access and removal. This one simple device streamlines infusion set-up, allows safe and easy access, while reducing variation and improve safety.
