In the 6 months since we have launched Swift there have been more than 6000 treatments carried out in the UK, and every day we’re hearing incredible success stories from the clinicians using the system.
Edinburgh, UK (PRWEB UK) 12 May 2017
Emblation Limited, a global leader in medical microwave technology, has been awarded “Best New Product” at the 2017 Business Insider Made in Scotland awards for a new, breakthrough treatment in the fields of Podiatry and Dermatology. CEO Gary Beale was presented with the award during the annual ceremony, held on Wednesday 19th April at Glasgow’s Science Centre.
Swift is a microwave-based aesthetic treatment system, approved for use in the UK, Europe, and Canada, that is currently being used by Podiatrists and Dermatologists to treat warts and verrucae – unsightly lesions caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV).
The system uses microwave energy to produce a heat shock protein effect, which leads to the immune system targeting viral tissue. Early clinical research in the UK has reported significantly higher levels of efficacy than traditional treatments. The treatment is now available in over 130 clinics throughout the UK.
Gary Beale commented: “This award is a fantastic triumph for our company, and recognition for the determination and level of innovation that our small team from central Scotland have produced.
In the 6 months since we have launched Swift there have been more than 6000 treatments carried out in the UK, and every day we’re hearing incredible success stories from the clinicians using the system. We are now in the process of launching Swift globally, in addition to continuing research into new indications.”
The Made in Scotland awards highlight both the national and international success of Scottish organisations, with categories ranging from Exporter of the year to Innovator of the year - a title that Emblation received during the 2016 awards ceremony in recognition of ground-breaking work in the field of microwave ablation, an emerging technology in the fight against cancer.
