Minneapolis, MN, July 11, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioSig Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: BSGM), a medical device company developing a proprietary platform designed to address an unmet technology need within the $4+ billion electrophysiology (EP) marketplace, today announced that the Company has engaged Health Research International (HRI) to compile essential market data and help perform strategic planning for its PURE EP(TM) platform technology. Project goals include understanding and presenting the clinical relevance of BioSig’s technology, pricing strategies, and envisioning optimal applications of BioSig’s platform technology beyond EP. In addition to benefitting from HRI’s acknowledged research expertise, the Company will gain access to HRI’s extensive network in the medical field. As such, this collaboration will provide further meaningful input regarding new products, technologies, and clinical applications, as the Company moves closer to the commercialization of the PURE EP System.
Health Research International is a “boutique” medical market research and business development firm with more than 30 years of experience addressing the needs of companies ranging from small start-ups to the largest medical device companies in the world. HRI’s custom consulting services include comprehensive market analyses and forecasts, focus groups, end user surveys and interviews, regulatory and reimbursement analyses, competitive analyses of products and companies, pricing sensitivity studies and econometric market modeling.
According to Suzanne Ratzloff, President of Health Research International, “Our surveys and interviews have documented the challenges electrophysiologists face performing intricate catheter ablations for complex arrhythmias, and they suggest that BioSig’s PURE EP System could represent a solution, both facilitating and expediting those procedures. Moreover, we believe the clarity afforded by BioSig’s intelligent signal acquisition technology could prove invaluable and even enabling for the development of other clinically meaningful technologies, especially within the emerging field of bioelectronics. As such, we are delighted that BioSig is involving us in its investigation and documentation of these opportunities.”
“We are very excited to work with Suzanne Ratzloff and her team at Health Research International during this pivotal point in our product development,” stated Ken Londoner, Chairman and CEO of BioSig Technologies. “I have known Suzanne for many years and know the impact that this group has had on many established and emerging technologies. HRI has been instrumental in supporting many companies’ marketing efforts ensuring successful investor presentations and product launches. We are very much looking forward to this collaboration for our PURE EP System launch and for our future technologies.”
