Implantica receives Frost & Sullivan’s 2022 European Technology Innovation Leadership Award for RefluxStop™ – an Innovative Treatment Solution for Acid Reflux
Implantica AG (publ), a med-tech company at the forefront of the upcoming eHealth revolution, announces today that Frost & Sullivan, world-renowned for its role in helping investors, corporate leaders and governments navigate economic changes and identify disruptive technologies, announced today that Implantica was named the winner of the 2022 European Technology Innovation Leadershiop Award for its novel RefluxStop™ technology treating gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
“Frost & Sullivan commends Implantica’s development of its groundreaking technology, RefluxStop™, a medical implant that restores the natural anatomy of the esophageal sphincter and successfully treats gastroesophageal reflux disease without affecting the food passageway. RefluxStop’s unique design and use of solid medical-grade silicone offers optimal flexibility and durability, providing maximum safety, superiorly treating a pathological low pH in lower esophagus (causing heartburn and cancer) and lowering the economic burden on both patients and society,” said Neeraj Nitin Jadhav, the Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst.
Each year Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has developed a product with innovative features and functionality that is gaining rapid acceptance in the market. Industry analysts compared market participants and measured performance through in-depth interviews, analyses and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry. The award recognizes the quality of the solution and the customer value enhancements it enables.
According to a recently published global study in Nature Medical Journal, there are more than 1 billion people suffering from reflux disease. GERD is among the top two most widespread chronic diseases in the world impacting 17% of the EU and 19% of the US population with over 6% of the population- over 400 million people- having daily symptoms.
“It is truly rewarding when groundbreaking technology is recognized. It requires imagination, dedication, and hard work to create solutions for problems where current treatment options fall short. RefluxStop™ restores and maintains the natural physiologic anatomy to treat acid reflux. The RefluxStop™ results speak for itself. We treat the dangerously low pH caused by acid reflux without inducing complications such as swallowing difficulties compared to existing surgical procedures. RefluxStop™ treats the cause of acid reflux as opposed to simply relieving its symptoms as with medical treatment. This means Implantica has a a multibillion dollar business opportunity within our reach, with our groundbreaking new technology RefluxStop™,” says Peter Forsell, CEO of Implantica.
