Axonics® Announces Listing on the U.K.’s National Health Service Supply Chain for Its Sacral Neuromodulation System
Axonics Modulation Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:AXNX), a medical technology company focused on the design, development and commercialization of innovative and minimally invasive sacral neuromodulation (“SNM”) solutions for the treatment of urinary and bowel dysfunction, announced today that the Axonics r-SNM™ System has been listed on the U.K.’s National Health Service Supply Chain (“NHS SC”) online catalogue, thereby allowing wide commercial distribution to NHS hospitals in England.
Listing on the NHS SC online catalogue is a key step toward broader availability of new medical technologies and orders for the Company’s product are already being received and shipped. The Axonics r-SNM System is the first rechargeable SNM system approved for sale in the U.K. for patients suffering from overactive bladder, fecal incontinence and urinary retention.
Raymond W. Cohen, CEO of Axonics, commented, “Following the effort initiated by the NHS to centralize medical device purchasing for its hospitals, listing on the NHS SC online catalogue is critical to conduct business in England. We are now well positioned for physicians to select and implant the Axonics solution for the benefit of a broader range of patients. These early orders are important as we establish our brand and create referral sites in England. Given the cost-saving aspect of our long-lived r-SNM implant and innovative product features, we are optimistic about our ability to further penetrate the market in the U.K. in 2019.”

About Overactive Bladder and Sacral Neuromodulation
Overactive bladder (OAB) affects an estimated 85 million adults in the U.S. and Europe. Another approximately 40 million adults are reported to suffer from fecal incontinence. SNM therapy is an effective and durable treatment that has been widely used and reimbursed in Europe and the U.S. for the past two decades. SNM is the only OAB treatment with proven clinical superiority to standard medical therapy and OAB patients who receive SNM report significantly higher quality of life than patients undergoing drug treatment.

Lenovo Data Center Group Delivers Broad Edge Computing Portfolio, Expands Investments in IoT22.2.2019 13:13:00 | Pressemelding
Next week at MWC Barcelona, Lenovo Data Center Group (DCG) will showcase continued investments in its solutions supporting IoT and edge computing as part of its IoT growth plan over the next few years. Building on the momentum of its fifth consecutive quarter of profit growth, Lenovo DCG is building a portfolio that takes infrastructure to where the data is, whether that be in the traditional data center, in the cloud or increasingly, at the edge. Today, around 10 percent of enterprise-generated data is created and processed outside a traditional centralized data center or cloud. By 2022, Gartner predicts this figure will reach 75 percent. This migration is driving increased concerns around data privacy, security and regulations coupled with challenges of latency, bandwidth and downtime. Lenovo is addressing these challenges by creating a broad portfolio of edge computing offerings that address the different ways that customers want to deploy edge computing solutions for IoT use cases.
