Sharp Medical Products, LLC Enters into an Exclusive Distribution Agreement with Panakeia, LLC, to Market and Distribute the ReactorTM Chest Tube Insertion Device to the U.S. Military Health System.
Geneva, IL – Sharp Medical Products, LLC, a privately held company and maker of the ReactorTM, announced that it has entered into a distribution agreement with Panakeia, LLC, a leading firm specializing in marketing and distributing innovative medical products and services to the United States Military Health System, to market and distribute its revolutionary chest tube
insertion device worldwide. Approved by the FDA for commercial distribution in 2015, the ReactorTM offers medical professionals a revolutionary way to insert chest tubes into the thoracic cavity to drain blood, air or infections. Placement of a chest tube into the thoracic cavity has been around for more than 100 years with virtually no change in technique – until now!
Some of the design features of the ReactorTM to markedly improve the insertion of chest tubes include:
- Rotating and retracting blade (carves not punctures through tissue)
- Oval shaft (fits between ribs better than round)
- Chest wall tunnel – (creates a constant diameter narrow tunnel of ~ 1 cm)
Potential advantages of the ReactorTM include smaller incision and faster procedure times. Other advantages may become clear with time.
“We are excited to have Panakeia represent the ReactorTM, to the military”, said Dave Sash, National Sales Director for Sharp Medical Products.. “Their attention to detail, quality systems, well trained staff, and in-depth knowledge of the Military Health System, make this unique partnership extremely valuable.” “We believe that with Panakeia representing the ReactorTM we will have the best exposure of our chest tube insertion device to the U.S. military and provide a revolutionary device for our soldiers on the battlefield”
“We are pleased to be the exclusive distributor for Sharp Medical and bring their innovative products to the Federal Market”, said Pam Jackson, COO of Panakeia., “Sharp Medical’s ingenuity of their REACTORTM will, for the first time in history, change the way chest tube insertion procedures are accomplished.
