Perry Baromedical and Kent Imaging Inc. announce Strategic Partnership in Hyperbarics

RIVIERA BEACH, Florida, July 17, 2018 (CSN) — Perry Baromedical and Kent Imaging Inc. today announced a Strategic Partnership where Perry will distribute Kent’s Near Infrared Imaging device (SnapshotNIR).

Through this partnership, Perry Baromedical, the only full line manufacturer of hyperbaric chambers in the industry, will continue to extend the innovative solutions that it offers its customers.  Kent’s tissue assessment technology is easy to use, convenient, and provides a cost-effective method of assessing the effects of hyperbaric therapy on wound oxygenation and wound health thus supporting the course of treatment and continuing to build the value Perry brings to its customers.

Oxygenation is widely accepted as the best biomarker of tissue health and healing.  Kent’s device is intended for use by healthcare professionals as a non-invasive tissue oxygenation measurement system that reports oxygen saturation (StO2), relative oxyhemoglobin level (HbO2), and relative deoxyhemoglobin (Hb) level in superficial tissue. Kent’s NIR multispectral imaging technology displays two-dimensional color-coded images providing critical information to help clinicians determine at risk tissue and guide treatments optimizing patient outcomes in wound care, plastic surgery, and various other reconstructive applications.

“Perry is pleased with our partnership with Kent as it represents the best of multi-spectral imaging technology available.  Our collective commitment to the industry is to offer best of class products with ease of use to our end users and a non-invasive technology for the patients.” Perry President and COO Mary Pat Finn enthusiastically stated.  “The Kent partnership allows Perry to offer essential comprehensive technology to enhance the diagnostic offerings in the wound care and hyperbaric market.”

“This partnership with Perry further optimizes patient treatment and monitoring resulting in better patient outcomes while helping reduce costs to the medical system” said Pierre Lemire, CEO of Kent Imaging.  “We are thrilled to bring together the leading-edge treatment technologies of Perry with the advanced tissue assessment technology of Kent – the winners are the patients, staff, and overall health care system.  This partnership with Perry aligns with Kent’s goal to lower complications and reduce the cost of care in wound healing.”
