Centurion Medical Products Acquires NuvoMed Inc. and Disimpactor® System
WILLIAMSTON, Mich., — (January 26,2016) — Centurion Medical Products, a leader in global patient care and product innovation, today announced the acquisition of NuvoMed Inc., the manufacturer of the DisImpactor®, an innovative, class 1 FDA registered medical device for the treatment of fecal impaction.
“Centurion’s mission is to provide customers and patients with the most innovative, efficient and effective medical products on the market,” said Tom Archipley, CEO of Centurion Medical Products. “Patient safety and comfort are very important to us. The DisImpactor is much more effective and comfortable than digital disimpaction and ought to become the standard of care, as adopted by the Alabama Board of Nursing in 2015. In leveraging our national sales force, our purchase of NuvoMed will make the DisImpactor much more widely available to hospitals, palliative and hospice care centers across America.”
The DisImpactor, designed by an ED physician, is a single-use system for the adult population that offers rapid relief and resolution of fecal impaction. Fecal impaction is a common occurrence in the elderly and oncology patients. The emergency department and hospice care represent the primary markets. In a market survey of hospice nurses, conducted by NuvoMed Inc., 64 percent noted they encounter patients with fecal impactions (FI) at least once per week. The key to the system is an easy to use hand-held device that breaks up the impaction more effectively and less painfully than digital disimpaction.
