Medline_DIG_PostDIG proudly announces that Devon Medical Products, a global medical device manufacturer, has formed a new strategic alliance with Medline Industries, Inc., the nation’s largest privately held manufacturer and distributor of health care products. Under the agreement, Medline will have exclusive U.S. distribution rights for Devon Medical Products’ line of CircuFlow® pneumatic compression therapy pumps that treat lymphedema, ArterioFlow® 7500 arterial compression pump, and all compression sleeve models that these devices utilize.

Varying medical sources estimate that three to five million Americans, including breast cancer survivors and individuals battling leg edema and ulcers, are affected by lymphedema – a condition in which damage or blockage of the lymph systems causes fluid buildup and massive swelling typically in the arms and legs. Devon Medical Products’ lymphedema pumps apply gradient air pressure through compatible garments on the arms or legs that inflate and deflate sequentially, a process that moves the lymphatic fluid in the correct physiological direction and prevents swelling. The arterial pump applies sequential air pressure through compatible garments on the foot and calf to help deliver blood to the feet and legs, which helps prevent blood pooling and ulcers on patients suffering from ischemia, claudication, and other arterial insufficiencies.

“We are very pleased to form this alliance with such a renowned and well-respected medical products company,” says Chip Ross, president of Devon Medical Products. “Medline has a rich tradition of offering quality medical devices at competitive price points in this country. We share Medline’s goals of enhancing patient care and increasing access to medical device technology, and look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship.”
