Tactile Medical launches ambulatory device to treat venous leg ulcers

Tactile Medical, a US-based provider of home therapy devices, has launched ACTitouch adaptive compression therapy system, an ambulatory device for patients with chronic wounds.

The ACTitouch system includes a therapy tracker, wrap-around sleeve, air-filled chambers and a padded undersock. The new system combines intermittent and sustained compression therapies in one device.

Tactile Medical chief medical officer Alan T. Hirsch noted for decades, there has been little tangible progress in establishing new methods to improve outcomes for the most challenging patients with chronic venous disease.

"New products must treat these conditions with real world comfort and sustained efficacy. The ACTitouch Adaptive Compression Therapy system offers the benefits of dual-compression therapy in one easy-to-wear device, giving patients the freedom to stay active while receiving safe and effective treatment," Hirsch added.

In parallel to the product launch, the company also reported the name change from Tactile Systems Technology to Tactile Medical.

Tactile Medical CEO Jerry Mattys noted the transition to Tactile Medical will more closely align the company’s name with its expanded treatment portfolio as we accelerate growth in new markets.

"The new name reflects the company’s commitment to advancing the standard of care in at-home therapies for chronic diseases," Mattys added.
