Axonics, Inc. (Nasdaq: AXNX), a global medical technology company that is developing and commercializing novel products for the treatment of bladder and bowel dysfunction, today announced the comprehensive launch of the Axonics F15 across the United States. The newly developed, long-lived, fully recharge-free sacral neuromodulation (SNM) system received FDA approval in March.
“The Axonics recharge-free system is a welcome advancement for patients suffering from bladder and bowel dysfunction,” said Taylor Moore, M.D., board-certified urologist at Arkansas Urology. “My initial implants of the new device have gone well, with low amplitudes achieved at the time of implant suggesting longevity in the body of around 20 years. Clinical outcomes with the Axonics rechargeable SNM system have exceeded our expectations and we anticipate similar results with the Axonics F15. We are pleased to now offer patients a non-rechargeable option that provides significant longevity in the body, constant current stimulation, and a remote control that is recharge-free and easy for patients to use.”
