Bioservo strengthens focus on Market Access and clinical evidence by appointing Annika Rydgård to the management team

In the commercialization phase Bioservo is in, clinical evidence is becoming increasingly important, and questions regarding market access in selected markets are of the utmost importance. The company's management team is therefore strengthened with Annika Rydgård, responsible for clinical projects and Market Access.

Bioservo has registered the strength-enhancing glove Carbonhand as an assistive medical device in Europe, Australia, and the United States. Bioservo and the sales organizations in each market are working with high intensity to obtain market access and reimbursement from authorities and insurance companies. 

At the same time, the work is intensified to obtain MDR approval for Carbonhand as a class IIa product in Europe and class 510(k) in the United States to also be able to claim that Carbonhand has a therapeutic effect. This is possible thanks to the results of the iHand study, which demonstrated a sustained improvement in grip strength of 24%.

In the work to strengthen the company's focus on topics related to market access and clinical evidence, we are therefore pleased to present Annika Rydgård as a new member of the management team.

"Annika has a solid background as a research-oriented therapist and has for some time worked closely with the commercial team. Thanks to her clinical knowledge and positive energy, she has quickly become established and requested as a key resource in the work to deepen the knowledge of Carbonhand, our studies, and our patient groups," says Petter Bäckgren, CEO of Bioservo.
