Ra Medical Systems Launches Cardiovascular and Dermatology Catheters and Lasers in Northern Europe


Ra Medical Systems, makers of excimer lasers and catheters for cardiovascular and dermatological diseases, and bo medical technologies, a multinational medical device sales and service distributor, announce the launch of the DABRA Atherectomy System for cardiovascular and Pharos Excimer Laser for dermatology in Europe.

Ra Medical’s Pharos (FDA market cleared and CE mark) has more than a decade of success treating challenging, chronic dermatology diseases including psoriasis, vitiligo, and atopic dermatitis throughout the United States, Middle East, and Asia. The DABRA Atherectomy System (CE mark, Investigational in the United States), has a 95% success rate in clinical trials in North America.

“Bo medical technologies has extensive expertise and market presence in both dermatology and vascular markets in the Benelux Union as well as Scandinavia. They have outstanding relationships with thought leaders and high volume practitioners in both therapeutic areas, extensive technical experience, and the drive to capture the Northern European market for both Pharos and DABRA,” said Ra Medical Systems Co-Founder and CEO Dean Irwin.

“We see bo medical as the first of many successful partnerships as we penetrate the dermatology and vascular markets in Europe. We are actively looking for additional distribution partners throughout Europe as we drive Pharos’ and DABRA’s commercialization in this region,” added Mr. Irwin.

Henk-Peter Oonk, MD, CEO of bo medical technologies commented, “Pharos will have a significant impact because all the doctors will market this to their patients as another option in the treatment of psoriasis and vitiligo. Biologicals are burdensome to some patients and not everybody desires or are eligible for them. Pharos will be a major breakthrough in the treatment of psoriasis and vitiligo in Europe.”

“Healthcare continues to evolve, with practitioners looking for newer, more cost-effective, safer, and better options than current treatments. Our laser and catheter systems offer alternative treatment options with potentially better outcomes and are now available in markets around the world. Giving patients access to these treatments for their diseases, often for the first time in their lives, is quite rewarding,” added Jeffrey Kraws, President.
