Trumbull company’s medical device taking off with sports teams

Major growth of CT-based medical device company

Manufactured by ZetrOZ Systems, the product, sam Sport, is an FDA-cleared medical device used both to reduce the pain associated with tendon, ligament and muscle injuries and to accelerate the healing process. It uses ZetrOZ’s proprietary miniaturization technology to provide ultrasonic waves that penetrate five centimeters into the tissue to increase circulation, oxygen and nutrient delivery and remove waste products such as lactic acid from the site of a musculoskeletal injury.

 

“The last year and a half have been a whirlwind for us,” said George Lewis, president and CEO of ZetrOZ and creator of the sam (sustained acoustic medicine) device. Noting that manufacturing and research and development take place at its facility at 56 Quarry Road in Trumbull, Lewis said “we’ve seen pretty explosive growth” since launching in 2014, with 15 National Football League teams, five Major League Soccer squads, and several National Basketball Association, WNBA and Major League Baseball teams using the device to treat injuries from pulled hamstrings and rotator cuff strains to ankle, shoulder and back issues.

Where the action is in wearables: Healthcare niches

Smart patches take off

ZetrOZ Systems’ sam® wearable products. Sam® Sport, for example, has a proprietary ultrasound technology using low intensity, long-duration ultrasound. It not only provides pain relief, but also speeds up the healing process for various tendon, ligament or muscle injuries, according to Chief Commercial Officer Jim Molinaro. To that end, there’s a small device that snaps into a bandage-like patch on the skin. Ultrasound wave pulses, he says, “wake up the human body,” building up collagen, which accelerates healing, increasing oxygen levels and blood flow. Sensors monitor the frequency of pulses, as well as temperature, to make sure the device doesn’t heat up too much. Approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) in 2013, it’s available by prescription in the U.S. and over the counter in Europe, Canada and Asia.

You have a spring in your step and boundless energy. But is it really essential?

How I’ve Become a Human Lab Rat in the Name of Tech

Ah, the good old days when you plugged in a laptop, booted up a few apps and wrote a review. My life has become damn scary these days as most of the products I look at are actually looking at me. My body fat, my sleep habits, my steps per day, my brain age, my body age, even my blood composition. All being scrutinized.
The new tech paradox? The only way I can review these products is to review myself. (A narcissist’s delight.)

Medical Product Outsourcing: An Idea that’s Ultra-Sound

A Connecticut-based startup is changing the way patients and physicians use ultrasound.

We’ve all heard the expression, “no pain, no gain.” But Trumbull, Conn.-based ultrasound device company ZetrOZ Inc., is finding success by playing with the old adage a bit, more along the lines of “gain via the pursuit of no pain.”
The no-pain part of the equation comes in the form of the company’s sustained acoustic medicine device, simply dubbed SAM by the technology’s developers.

World’s Smallest Ultrasound Offers Wearable Pain Relief

Anti-inflammatory medications and opiates are the main treatment for pain patients in the U.S. but a new product is looking to change all that. Susan Whiting, who has severe osteoarthritis, tried those pharmaceuticals without result. She had resigned herself to living in pain.

But earlier this year, she got relief from a clinical trial for a new device called Sam.

"It gave me my life back. It really did. It is a long lasting because after the eight weeks, I was walking up and down stairs with no pain, which I have not done for 15 years," said Whiting.
