CORRECTING and REPLACING Innovative Health Receives FDA Clearances to Reprocess St. Jude Medical’s Advisor™ FL, Two Medtronic Diagnostic Catheters and Biosense Webster’s DECANAV®.

December 7, 2018

PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 7, 2018--Second paragraph, second sentence of release dated November 26, 2018, should read: It remains the only reprocessor to gain FDA clearances for the ViewFlex Xtra by St. Jude.

The corrected release reads:

INNOVATIVE HEALTH RECEIVES FDA CLEARANCES TO REPROCESS ST. JUDE MEDICAL’S ADVISOR™ FL, TWO MEDTRONIC DIAGNOSTIC CATHETERS AND BIOSENSE WEBSTER’S DECANAV®.

The company is the first in the industry to receive clearances for the Advisor and the DECANAV, and the only reprocessor to offer mapping and diagnostic ultrasound catheters from all the major Electrophysiology device manufacturers.

Innovative Health, a national leader in medical device reprocessing for the cardiology sector, announced it has received FDA clearances to reprocess the Advisor FL Circular Mapping Catheter, Medtronic’s Torqr ™ and Marinr ™, and Biosense Webster’s DECANAV. Three of these clearances were received within the last month alone.

Innovative Health has already achieved a similar level of dominance within the ultrasound catheter reprocessing market. It remains the only reprocessor to gain FDA clearances for the ViewFlex Xtra by St. Jude. The company’s commitment to research and development allowed it to achieve 23 FDA clearances in only two years.

This commitment has paid off for Innovative Health’s hospital customers, many of whom save hundreds of thousands of dollars per year by reprocessing these devices. Innovative Health partners with hospitals to collect these catheters, then applies a rigorous, proprietary process to clean, test and sterilize them for re-use. These processes face heavy scrutiny by the FDA, which must issue a clearance before any device can be reprocessed.

“Now that we’ve received the clearance to begin reprocessing DECANAV, Advisor, Torqr and Marinr, Innovative Health is clearly poised to dominate the reprocessing industry across all types of catheters,” according to Rick Ferreira, CEO of Innovative Health. “Our focus on increasing savings for EP labs is working and has cemented our position as the leading innovator in the reprocessing industry.”

“The third-party trademarks used herein are for device identification and are trademarks of their respective owners.”
