"We are pleased to offer pain management physicians and patients a dual-gated valve pump versus the currently available peristaltic pump," stated Steve Adler, CEO of Flowonix Medical Inc. "Physicians are looking for options to the negative effects of high doses of oral narcotics for the management of pain in chronic pain patients. In a multicenter clinical study, the Prometra pump system demonstrated accurate, safe, and effective delivery of intrathecal medication. 1 This should reduce the amount of oral medication necessary to manage pain, reduce side effects associated with oral narcotics, and, as we see in new cost effectiveness studies, reduce the cost associated with drug delivery compared to oral narcotics."
