RMS Freedom Infusion System Cleared for Both Subcutaneous and Intravenous Indications
CHESTER, NY / September 05, 2017 / Repro Med Systems, Inc. dba RMS Medical Products (OTCQX: REPR) announces the FDA issued a new 510(k) clearance for the RMS “Integrated Catch-Up Freedom Syringe Driver Infusion System” effective August 31, 2017. The Freedom System is the first and only fully integrated mechanical system cleared by the FDA for a wide range of medications and flow rates.
Manufactured in the U.S.A., the System is cleared for subcutaneous and intravenous indications, including specific subcutaneous immunoglobulins and antibiotics. The Freedom System reduces the need for stocking other specialty infusion devices for these different applications.
Andy Sealfon, RMS CEO, says, “RMS continues to provide the highest quality devices intended to improve patient quality of life. Our System delivers an accurate flow rate, and considers everything in the fluid path as an entire infusion system, making the patient the only variable. In doing so, it leads to increased compliance, healthier patients and therefore, lower overall costs. RMS will continue to develop new devices and technologies upon this platform and will be filing additional FDA 510(k) submissions for new applications in a continuing effort to help patients throughout the world.”
RMS Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Fred Ma adds, “Drug infusion delivery has two critical concerns: one is patient safety (i.e. for immunoglobulins – pain, swelling, leakage, and redness) and the other is the ultimate therapeutic outcome related to the drug’s efficacy. The best delivery system includes dynamic equilibrium, DynEQ™ – a mechanism that reacts to the patient site pressures and appropriately adjusts flow rate to minimize risks of over-infusion.”
RMS Medical Products is the leading manufacturer of medical devices used for home infusions and suctioning. The infusion product portfolio currently includes the FREEDOM60® and FreedomEdge® Syringe Infusion Drivers, RMS Precision Flow Rate Tubing™ and RMS HIgH-Flo Subcutaneous Safety Needle Sets™.
