Dymedso Sends 29 Frequencer Devices to Support Toronto Grace Health Centre

Dymedso Inc. (“Dymedso”), a Montréal-based medical technology company, is proud to announce that Toronto Grace Health Centre will now be able to rely on 29 new leading-edge acoustic wave machines for the treatment of lung infections and post-COVID-19 rehabilitation.

In response to the dramatic increase in COVID-19-related hospitalizations in Ontario, the federal department of Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED) has confirmed the purchase of 29 Frequencer® devices that will be deployed starting this week at Toronto Grace Health Centre to reduce pressure on this vital facility in Ontario’s healthcare system. The state-of-the-art device has been successfully used in Québec hospitals since last December, and has shown promising results in the treatment of patients in intensive care and in the rehabilitation of more severely ill COVID-19 patients.

“As a rehabilitation facility with a special interest in respiratory care, the Frequencer will enhance secretion clearance safely using state of the art technology. Clinically, it allows for secretion mobilization and faster recovery. The implication is faster rehabilitation and decrease in length of stay, which in turn provides exceptional quality patient care,” says Jake Tran, President and CEO at The Salvation Army Toronto Grace Health Centre.

“Clinical advances show that non-invasive treatments, such as the acoustic wave treatment provided by the Frequencer, increase the rate of medical success and significantly reduce the risk of patient complications,” says Dr. Simon Phaneuf, emergency physician and Chief Scientific Officer at Dymedso. He adds: “This safe and effective treatment not only saves lives, but also allows patients to be treated preventively before their condition deteriorates and requires hospitalization in intensive care, thus avoiding significant costs to the healthcare system.”

Developed and built entirely in Canada, the Frequencer provides gentle, non-invasive airway clearance treatment via proprietary acoustic sound waves that match the resonance frequency of the lung’s mucus.

These sound waves cause the lungs to vibrate, changing the viscosity of the mucus, dislodging it, and ultimately unblocking the airways, giving the patient the capacity to breathe better and reducing the risk of superimposed secondary infection. The device was designed to be used at home and in a variety of care settings, including hospitals, long-term-care centres, private senior residences and rehabilitation centres.

Preliminary results of an ongoing economical clinical study in Quebec hospitals is showing that the Frequencer® is significantly improving the clinical status of patients with symptoms of pneumonia, a symptom also associated with COVID-19. The study also demonstrates that clinicians believe that the Frequencer® could reduce ICU admissions, shorten hospital stays and optimize caregiver time with each patient.

This partnership with ISED Canada is in line with Dymedso’s desire to expand the use of the Frequencer to many healthcare facilities in Canada, in addition to continuing its rollout internationally. 775 devices are currently distributed in 53 countries, including at a number of world-renowned teaching hospitals in California, Europe and Kuwait.

Data from clinical studies of STK-001 demonstrated clinical benefit for patients ages 2 to 18 years old, including reductions in seizures and improvements in cognition and behavior that support the potential for disease modificatio. Analysis of 72 patients treated in STK-001 clinical trials suggests that higher STK-001 drug exposure in brain leads to greater seizure reductions. Two-year data from the longest prospective natural history study of Dravet syndrome showed that, on average, patients experienced no meaningful improvement in convulsive seizure frequency and exhibited widening gaps in cognition and behavior despite treatment with the best available anti-seizure medicines.
"Exact Sciences is looking forward to presenting new evidence at SABCS that adds important perspectives to treating breast cancer patients and showing that some patients may be able to de-escalate treatments and still have positive outcomes," said Dr. Rick Baehner, Chief Medical Officer, Precision Oncology, Exact Sciences. "Every year, we build upon the precedent set by the Oncotype DX Breast Recurrence Score® test and its prognostic and predictive abilities to determine the chemotherapy benefit for specific breast cancer patients. We are pleased to see authorities expanding access to this test as we continue to develop key evidence in collaboration with some of the world's most prestigious, breast cancer-focused organizations."
Clozapine has been established as the most effective antipsychotic medication for treatment-resistant schizophrenia. However, it is significantly underutilized mainly due to the risk of developing agranulocytosis and the need to frequently monitor the absolute neutrophil count (ANC).
Dagi-Ben Noon, CEO of Inspira Technologies, reflects on the partnership's significance: "By Integrating our technology to oxygenate blood directly with Ennocure's infection prevention solutions, we are focusing on potentially improving patient outcomes in ICUs and paving the way for safer, more effective life-support treatments. This collaboration is expected to accelerate the development and broaden the implementation of our advanced technology."
The findings suggest that the novel, non-invasive genomic test can help physicians guide next steps for these patients, enabling them to potentially avoid unnecessary invasive procedures or accelerate time to appropriate treatment.
