IOMED, Inc. is a leader in developing, manufacturing and marketing active drug delivery systems. A large portion of their products focus on a method known as iontophoresis. Iontophoresis is a needle free, non invasive technology for delivering water soluble, ionic drugs or other compounds through the skin using a microprocessor controlled electrical current. The current carries the compounds into underlying tissue and into the blood stream, making the delivery either site specific or systemic. The microprocessor facilitates variable dose control enabling programmable or patient controlled dosing as well as rapid onset and cessation of delivery, where desired.
Iontophoresis can deliver a broad range of compounds including large molecules such as peptides and proteins. It is also several orders of magnitude faster than passive patches or topical creams. As a leader in the development, manufacture and sale of active drug transport systems for the sports and rehabilitative medicine markets, IOMED has the most comprehensive line of iontophoretic drug delivery products to treat inflammatory conditions and to administer local dermal anesthesia. Their proven technology has been used in over 22 million patient treatments. On average, IOMED products are used in clinics nationwide over 7,000 times per day.
