Flowonix Medical Inc. Announces US Market Launch Of The Prometra® Programmable Intrathecal Drug Infusion Pump

MOUNT OLIVE, N.J., April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Flowonix Medical Inc., a medical device company focused on providing advanced implantable drug delivery solutions, announced today the US launch of the Prometra programmable intrathecal pump. The Prometra pump provides important new enhancements for physicians who treat patients in chronic pain through the delivery of preservative-free morphine, Infumorph®.  The Prometra pump offers improved accuracy and longevity compared to currently available programmable pumps, both important factors in providing enhanced therapy to chronic pain patients.


"Given the increased concern regarding the abuse of oral narcotics, programmable pumps offer clinicians an important option for treating patients suffering from chronic pain. In addition to the economic and clinical advantages of implantable pump therapy, the Prometra pump contains innovative technology for very accurate drug delivery and increased device longevity," stated Tim Deer, MD, Clinical Professor of Anesthesiology at West Virginia University. The Prometra pump uses a patented dual-gated valve drug delivery mechanism resulting in very accurate dosing of medication and due to few moving parts significantly improves the longevity of the pump. 

Programmable intrathecal pumps are implanted in the body and deliver a tiny amount of medication directly to the intrathecal space around the spinal column. This allows physicians to reduce the amount of medication needed daily by the patient.

"The programmable intrathecal pump is a therapy whose efficacy in treating patients in chronic pain has been established for over 25 years. This therapy has demonstrated consistent clinical benefits for patients suffering from chronic pain, including chronic back pain, a debilitating disease costing millions of dollars in lost productivity and reducing the ability of patients to manage their activities of daily living," stated Dr. Yeshvant A. Navalgund, pain management physician from Greensburg, Pa.

The Prometra infusion pump offers a new design compared to infusion pumps on the market, which helps make the pump highly accurate in dosing.
