Pending Entries into Large Markets
At Milestone Scientific, we are working to develop and commercialize our products through key players in additional markets.
In the absence of curative procedures, arthritis patients are obliged to endure multiple painful injections each year over their lifetime. Often these injections are not efficacious, because the doctor, using a manual syringe, may have difficulty locating the intra-articular space or injecting the appropriate volume of hyaluronic acid or other medicament into that space. In an independent animal study, CompuFlo® has proven successful in administering medicaments into the intra-articular space using its computer-controlled pressure sensing capabilities.
Cosmetic Surgery Injections
The CompuFlo system with DPS Dynamic Pressure Sensing Technology® provides an objective tool that can consistently and accurately maintain the optimal pressure for the placement of Botox® injections into soft facial tissue. The controlled pressure can be regulated to minimize pain for patients. Moreover, our patented hand piece designs can prevent needle deflection, enabling the practitioner to better identify the specific location for placement. A comfortable stylus grip, in combination with a precision syringe pump, allows for faster, more precise and painless injections. A detailed procedural record can be either downloaded or printed directly from the instrument.
Intravitreal (IVT) injections are one of the most commonly performed procedures across all specialties, and the fastest growing procedure in ophthalmology. A variety of complications can be reduced or avoided using our DPS Dynamic Pressure Sensing Technology, including bleeding, retinal tear/detachment and cataracts. Our CompuFlo-based Ophthalmic Injection System has been shown to effectively reduce or eliminate subjective pain, identify and differentiate specific tissue types, and deliver superior tactile and surgical control.
General Medical Injections
The CompuFlo system with DPS Dynamic Pressure Sensing Technology provides an objective tool that can consistently and accurately maintain the optimal pressure for injections into soft tissue. These applications include vaccines, hair transplantation, skin lesion excision and other local anesthetic injections for minor surgery and podiatry. The controlled pressure can be regulated to minimize pain for patients. Moreover, our patented hand piece designs can prevent needle deflection, enabling the practitioner to better identify the specific location for placement. A comfortable stylus grip, in combination with a precision syringe pump, allows for faster, more precise and painless injections. A detailed procedural record can be downloaded.
The CompuFlo system brings a significant advantage to drug administration during surgery because of its ability to differentiate tissue type and precisely control infusion of drugs in-situ. CompuFlo can precisely regulate and control the aspiration of fluids, specific bodily tissues or foreign materials from fragile tissues such as the brain and nervous systems. CompuFlo can also identify specific anatomic locations, thus enabling delicate micro-surgical procedures to be performed with more care, for reduced risk of bodily tissue damage.
There are a number of injectable drugs routinely self-administered in a home or office setting using spring loaded automatic injection devices by patients who suffer from long-term chronic conditions, such as auto-immune diseases like Multiple Sclerosis, Crohns Disease and Rheumatoid Arthritis. The CompuFlo system can serve as a painless subcutaneous injection method for these self-administered drugs. A significant reduction in pain during delivery will have a positive impact on patient compliance with therapy adherence, which is a major consideration when physicians are determining which drugs to prescribe.
