Bioservo is investing further in Life Science

During the year, new clinical data will be presented that are expected to demonstrate the positive effects of using Bioservo's grip-strengthening glove Carbonhand. In connection with this, a completely new version of Carbonhand is launched with increased functionality and an improved user experience. To further strengthen the sales organization, we have appointed a Nordic sales manager for Life Science.

Later this year, the final results of the iHand study *, a randomized multicenter study conducted by Roessingh Research and Development in the Netherlands, will be presented. Preliminary data show promising results in terms of the primary power measures, improved hand function and increased grip strength. The final results will be presented at a number of scientific conferences during the year. The first opportunity is during the conference organized by the International Federation of Hand Surgery and Hand Therapy, (IFSSH) in London in June.

In connection with the presentation of the results of the study, Carbonhand 2.0 will be introduced in the Nordic region and the rest of Europe. Carbonhand 2.0 is a completely new version of our grip-strengthening glove, with increased functionality and an improved user experience, which will be able to be used both as an assistive device and in the rehabilitation of patients with impaired hand function.

Carbonhand was launched already in 2013 under the name SEM-Glove and has been available to people with impaired hand function since then, in Sweden mainly via the Swedish Public Employment Service and the Swedish Social Insurance Agency, but also as a prescriptive aid via a few regions. When we are now about to present new clinical data that is expected to strengthen clinical evidence and at the same time introduce a completely new product, we are making a significant investment in Life Science both in the Nordic region and the rest of Europe. Part of this initiative is to strengthen the sales organization with a Nordic sales manager, Philip Simonson, who will work with both direct sales in Sweden and with our Nordic distributors. Philip has extensive experience of sales in medtech and a long experience of working with procurements both within and outside the Swedish market.

Preparations have also been initiated to introduce Carbonhand on the US market at a later stage
"We look forward with confidence to being able to present the final results from the clinical study, where preliminary data show promising results both in terms of improved hand function and increased grip strength." Says Petter Bäckgren, CEO of Bioservo. "Our investment in Life Science is based on the fact that we see great market potential in both Europe and the US, where we with our unique technology have the opportunity to help even more patients to have an increased quality of life."
