ELMSFORD, N.Y., May 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NanoVibronix, Inc, (NASDAQ:NAOV), a medical device company utilizing the Company's proprietary and patented low intensity surface acoustic wave (SAW) technology, today provided a business update for the first quarter of 2018.

Brian Murphy, Chief Executive Officer of NanoVibronix, commented, "We are making rapid progress executing on our commercial strategy. Most recently, we announced the expansion of our distribution network, including a key partnership with Fabrication Enterprises, Inc., to market and distribute PainShield® in the U.S. Fabrication Enterprises is a leading distributor in the sports medicine, sports trainer, and physical therapy markets. We entered into a similar agreement with a large global medical device distributor that intends to target multiple segments of the sports injury market. Aside from these distribution agreements, we are getting strong support from a number of professional athletes who have experienced the benefits of PainShield first hand and have publicly endorsed the product. Given the broad range of pain-related indications our product addresses, we also believe the device may help patients reduce their need for opioids.”

“In regard to UroShield™, we recently announced that we signed Instrumed Surgical of Mississauga, Ontario, Canada as our exclusive distributor for UroShield™ in Canada. This agreement follows our recent announcement of a UK distributor, and we look forward to announcing a number of similar agreements around the world as we execute our global roll-out strategy. Overall, we are seeing strong interest in UroShield, not only from distributors, but also physicians, hospitals and payors as catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) is a major cause of patient mortality that is estimated to result in over 13,000 deaths per year in the U.S. alone.”

“Overall, we remain encouraged by the outlook for the business. Final results from both the UroShield and PainShield studies are expected to be ready for submission to a peer-reviewed journal in the second quarter of 2018, which should help drive awareness and adoption for these products. We also continue to work toward several regulatory milestones, which will be a centerpiece of our commercialization strategy. Additionally, we have been fortunate in attracting sales and marketing talent that will help drive the strategy both in the Americas and abroad. Collectively, the key components of our strategy are falling into place and we are gaining traction in each of our respective markets.”

The Company’s filed its Form 10-Q on May 15, 2018, which is available on the Company’s website www.nanovibronix.com.
