Emblation announces launch of Swift in the USA

29 January 2019

Emblation is delighted to announce that Swift®, the breakthrough microwave treatment system, is now available in the United States. The Swift® system is a surface-based device intended for the coagulation of soft tissue during non-invasive procedures, and received 510(k) clearance in October 2018.

Saorsa Inc, based in Seattle, WA, is the exclusive partner for Swift® in the USA, and the first system was delivered to Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine in Philadelphia, PA.

Emblation CEO Gary Beale and Saorsa co-founder, Pete Turnbull, both travelled to Philadelphia to visit with Dr Tracey Vlahovic and witness the first US treatments to take place.

Emblation CEO, Gary Beale, commented: "With the success we've seen in the UK, Canada, and Australia, we're excited to finally deliver Swift® to the US. Our commercial partners Saorsa have already been working hard delivering training to a number of new treatment sites across the country, and we look forward to hearing more stories from patients who have benefited from the fantastic results Swift® provides."

With treatment times in seconds, Swift® delivers a fast, simple, clean and effective option for skin lesions. Low level microwave energy (compared to existing microwave systems) is delivered with precision into the skin to a predetermined depth via a surface-contact probe, delivering rapid internal heat generation with minimal damage to the skin surface. The Swift® microwave system has been used in more than 30,000 procedures across the UK, Canada, and Australia and is now available in North America.
