California-based medtech company Koya Medical has developed active compression therapy system Dayspring for the treatment of lymphedema and venous diseases that impact lymphatic flow in lower extremities.
The Dayspring system is the first wearable and mobility-enabled compression system designed with real life in mind. It is the first and only compression therapy option designed to enable movement, mobility and personalized care that is unavailable with traditional compression therapy. The Dayspring system includes a low-profile active garment made of soft, breathable mesh using Koya’s proprietary Flexframe technology; a smart, rechargeable, hand-held controller that can be worn on a lanyard; and a mobile app that allows users or their clinicians to program custom treatment options.
Patients treated with Dayspring, the prescription only medical device, receive standard of care active compression therapy with a mobility-enabling wearable device designed with real life demands in mind. The Dayspring system includes a low-profile active garment made of soft, breathable mesh using Koya’s proprietary Flexframe technology; a smart, rechargeable, hand-held controller that can be worn on a lanyard; and a mobile app that allows users or their clinicians to program custom treatment options. Koya previously received FDA clearance for Dayspring for upper extremities in June 2020, according to a press release.
“Lymphedema can be physically and emotionally debilitating for patients, so a daily treatment option that enables mobility and allows them to receive treatment while continuing their daily life activities is a significant breakthrough,” said Andy Doraiswamy, Ph.D., Koya founder, President and CEO. “We are excited about this new indication and milestone, as well as the addition of three new esteemed executive leaders.
