Garwood Medical Granted FDA Breakthrough Device Designation for Biofilm Tool -

Garwood Medical Devices was granted a Breakthrough Device designation from FDA for BioPrax™, a minimally invasive electrical stimulation tool in development to help eliminate biofilm infections on knee implants during early intervention procedures. Garwood uses a biofilm eradication technology that is licensed exclusively from the University at Buffalo. BioPrax is designed to treat infections on metallic implants, specifically knee replacements. The device provides a low-voltage electrical treatment to these prosthetics, creating an environment that kills bacteria associated with biofilm infections. (Garwood Medical Devices, 10/22/19)
