Sales of the strength-enhancing glove Carbonhand® have taken off in the German market, where it is estimated that over one million people would be helped by Carbonhand. So far this year, more than four times as many Carbonhand systems have been ordered for Germany compared to the same period last year.
Germany is Europe's largest market in terms of population and over 8.7 million people have disabilities of the types Carbonhand is designed for. External analyses show that, conservatively, over 1 million of these people could be helped by Carbonhand to cope better with everyday life, become more independent, and have a better quality of life.
So far this year, Bioservo has received orders from Germany for 21 Carbonhand systems with an order value of just over SEK 1.4 million. Of these, 16 have been ordered for patients suffering from stroke, MS and other neurological diseases. In addition, 5 Carbonhand systems have been delivered to distributors for use in patient trials and to introduce Carbonhand within the healthcare system.
"We are very pleased with the development we see in Germany. The sales increase of 300% is due to several factors, partly because our new version of Carbonhand can help significantly more patients, but above all, the awareness and acceptance of Carbonhand has contributed to making it easier to get Carbonhand prescribed. We hope and believe that what we are now witnessing is the beginning of a breakthrough in the German market and that we can help even more people to increased independence.", says Petter Bäckgren, CEO of Bioservo.
