MENLO PARK, Calif., February 25, 2014 -- Neodyne Biosciences, a medical device company focused on the development and commercialization of innovative tissue repair devices to promote healing and minimize scar formation, today announced a partnership with Strouse to scale production of its embrace® Advanced Scar Therapy devices, which mechanically offload a uniform amount of tension from a newly formed scar.
"embrace® is a powerful new technology for significantly reducing scarring and improving aesthetic outcomes following surgery," said Bill Beasley, President of Neodyne Biosciences, "and as physician adoption and patient demand has increased, it's critical for us to be in a position to meet that demand efficiently."
"A partnership with Neodyne is an exciting opportunity that is a direct result of our strategic focus on the Medical and Health Care market," said Sue Chambers, President and CEO of Strouse, "We offer the ability to scale manufacturing and together we have the opportunity to deliver embrace® Advanced Scar Therapy into physician hands more quickly."
Neodyne's first product family, embrace® Advanced Scar Therapy, has received 510(k) clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and has been proven to significantly improve scar appearance in randomized, controlled studies.  ,2
