SEVERNA PARK, Md., Nov. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical technology company, iSonea Ltd. (ASX: ISN; OTCQX: ISOAY) today announced that it has raised $4.04 million in a renounceable rights issue that was fully underwritten by Patersons Securities Limited. Coupled with a recent investment of $1.05 million from renowned Australian investor Bruce Mathieson (Investment Holdings Pty Ltd), iSonea has raised more than $5 million in new capital since August 2012, which will allow the company to focus on delivering AirSonea™ as a commercial-stage medical device in the second half of 2013.
AirSonea is a smartphone app-based wheeze monitoring technology powered by iSonea's acoustic respiratory monitoring (ARM™) sensors and analytical software in combination with the AsthmaSense™ smartphone app. AirSonea will run on iPhone and Android platforms, enabling anyone, anywhere, at any time to conveniently monitor asthma events and take appropriate action to control the condition.
"The recent infusion of capital reflects strong investor confidence in iSonea's ability to establish a leadership position in the global explosion of mobile health disease management products and services," said Michael Thomas, CEO of iSonea, Ltd. "This financing will allow us to continue to support upgrades to our popular AsthmaSense™ app and accelerate development of AirSonea, a revolutionary approach to asthma monitoring that will allow a smartphone to function as a personal asthma monitoring device."
In the United States alone, 25 million people have asthma, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The CDC also estimates the cost burden in the U.S. alone exceeds $56 billion annually, as poorly controlled asthma is associated with increased emergency room visits, hospitalizations and medical costs. The World Health Organization estimates that there are more than 250,000 deaths globally from poorly controlled asthma every year. The medical community's guidelines, including those from the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), state that regular monitoring of breathing symptoms is necessary to improve medication compliance and successful long-term management of asthma. It is also recommended that all people with asthma have an asthma action plan developed with their doctor to help control their asthma.
