Clearwater company to distribute diabetes pain management device

Business briefs

One Source Medical Group, a diabetes management company in Clearwater, is one of only two companies in the nation selected by NeuroMetrix to begin distributing a new FDA-approved diabetes pain management device called Sensus.

Manufactured by NeuroMet­rix, Sensus is an electrical nerve stimulator intended for relief of chronic pain in the lower leg and foot. The device is worn on the upper calf and activated by the press of a button, which sends an electric current that stops nerve pain signals from reaching the brain. NeuroMetrix received FDA clearance for the Sensus device in August 2012 to treat painful diabetic neuropathy.

"One Source Medical Group's diabetes focus makes them a natural partner for our Sensus launch," said Dr. Shai N. Gozani, president and chief executive officer of Massachusetts-based NeuroMetrix. "We are pleased to join with OSMG as our first Sensus distributor in a planned national network which will provide broad product exposure and patient delivery capability."

"This device will give people back their quality of life," said Jon Jimenez, OSMG chief executive officer. "It can also help people from having to go on medication and cut down on managed care costs."

One Source Medical Group is located at 13505 Icot Blvd., Suite 209, Clearwater. Founded in 2007, the business focuses on diabetes management and education and provides diabetes testing supplies and urological supplies.
