ImpediMed’s SOZO® Digital Health Platform Voted Among Top Five Finalists for Southern California ABBY Awards

November 27, 2018

BRISBANE, Australia & CARLSBAD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 27, 2018--ImpediMed Limited (ASX: IPD), a global provider of medical technology to non-invasively measure, monitor and manage tissue composition and fluid status using bioimpedance spectroscopy (BIS), announces that its SOZO ® Digital Health Platform has been voted among the top five finalists for ABL Organization’s 19th  in the category of Innovative Health IT or Digital Health Technology. Richard Carreon, managing director and CEO, ImpediMed, will present key information about SOZO, a leading, non-invasive and FDA-cleared BIS digital health platform that measures, monitors and manages fluid accumulation in patients with certain conditions resulting from cancer treatment, such as lymphedema (LE) and heart failure (HF).

“This recognition further elevates the importance of SOZO to enhance cancer survivorship,” says Carreon. “It is breakthrough technology that provides physicians with easy access to an unprecedented level of information and data without the need for an invasive procedure. With increased adoption in healthcare systems nationwide, and with new research validating its effectiveness, an even greater number of cancer survivors can benefit with better health outcomes and improved quality of life.”

Carreon points to the recently published MD Anderson study to assess the validity of L-Dex BIS measurements for evaluating the effectiveness of interventions to treat lymphedema. Using ImpediMed technology, researchers conclude that the L-Dex correlates most closely with all measures and is the recommended metric when using BIS. Findings support the adjunctive use of the L-Dex ratio with limb volume measurements for objective diagnosis, evaluation of lymphedema severity, longitudinal serial evaluation of lymphedema, and response to conservative and surgical interventions.
