HOUSTON, Aug. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- OrthoAccel Technologies, Inc. announced this week that it has finalized distribution agreements with two key partners: AB Orthodontics Pty Ltd in Melbourne, Australia, and Inno Dental and Medical Corporation (Inno DMC), based in Seoul, South Korea.
The AcceleDent System is currently being sold to select orthodontic specialists in the United Kingdom, where it was introduced last year through a limited release market program. The lightweight device, used to speed up the rate of orthodontic treatment, is intended for 20 minutes of daily use. Patients simply bite down on the Mouthpiece to hold it in place, which allows freedom of the hands to engage in other routine, daily activities during the treatment session. Patients have reported using the device while engaged in a variety of activities, including homework, watching television and commuting to work. The Company has reported plans for a general market release in the United Kingdom in September, at the British Orthodontic Conference in Brighton.
Mike Kaufman, VP of Marketing and Business Development for OrthoAccel commented, "Australia and South Korea are key international markets for us and allow us to develop product awareness and success stories in advance of a future release in other international markets and the United States."
