PATIENT ACCESS TO THE TUBECLEAR SYSTEM EXPANDING THROUGH REGIONAL DISTRIBUTORS
BELLEFONTE, PA – Actuated Medical, Inc. (AMI) recently signed two regional U.S. distributors for the TubeClear system. Alamo Scientific, Inc. distributes the TubeClear system throughout Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri, and Iowa. Clinical Technology, Inc. (CTI) distributes the system in Ohio, Western Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota.
“Clinical Technology, Inc. is excited to begin representation of the TubeClear system from Actuated Medical,” said Kent Krafft, vice president of CTI. “As the premier specialty distributor in the Midwest, CTI strives to provide our customers with solutions to their challenges, and feel strongly that TubeClear offers a unique and effective solution to the persistent problem of clogged enteral feeding tubes. The system also fits nicely with our enteral feeding product mix, and we look forward to educating our clinicians on the many advantages TubeClear has to offer.”
The TubeClear system is an FDA cleared medical device that uses patented mechanical motion technology to clear clogs in most feeding and decompression tubes while the tube remains in the patient and works at bedside. Keeping these tubes clear prevents interruptions to feeding and medication delivery, allowing clinicians to maintain their focus on improving patient care and reducing healthcare cost associated with tube replacement. The system, which is comprised of reusable control boxes and single-use clearing stems, is designed, developed, and manufactured by AMI in Bellefonte, PA.
“At Alamo, we specialize in bringing innovative medical technologies to the market for improving healthcare,” said Todd Endersby, president of Alamo Scientific. “TubeClear is a great fit as an innovative solution to a common problem with feeding tubes. We’re excited to represent the device and partner with Actuated.”
“Partnering with Alamo and CTI expedites access of the TubeClear system to clinicians who need an effective tool to clear partially and fully clogged feeding tubes,” said Maureen L. Mulvihill, Ph.D., president and CEO of AMI. “These partnerships are very well aligned to our corporate goal of improving patient outcomes.”
