With every measurement, SOZO delivers condition-specific metrics that inform medical decisions at the point-of-care.

"Every time a patient is measured using SOZO, our bioimpedance spectroscopy technology delivers condition-specific metrics that inform medical decisions at the point-of-care," stated Dave Anderson, Interim CEO and Director of ImpediMed. "Reaching 500,000 patient tests is an important milestone and positive indicator of the future health of our business. I want to thank our team, our customers, our partners, and, most importantly, patients for their dedication to the advancement and adoption of SOZO to improve patient care."

The SOZO Digital Health Platform launched in 2017 and improvements delivered with four generations of software advancements have led to increased adoption and utilization every year. The launch of SOZO's cloud-based platform in 2019 was a major transition that dramatically reduced the customer requirements for implementation leading to faster on-boarding and broader adoption. Since then, substantial software improvements including new assessment types such as heart failure and Segmental BodyComp™ Analysis, an intuitive redesign of the software interface, enhanced privacy and security features, electronic health record (EHR) interface, and data analytics continue to drive increasing adoption and utilization of SOZO worldwide.

The increase in clinical evidence supporting the use of SOZO to proactively manage chronic and complex conditions has also driven an increase in patient testing. Studies evaluating the use of SOZO to monitor fluid volumes in heart failure patients led to the launch of SOZO's HF-Dex™ Heart Failure Analysis and ImpediMed's first heart failure customers in 2020. In oncology, the body of evidence supporting the use of SOZO's L-Dex® Analysis for Lymphedema has grown dramatically with eight publications from ImpediMed's PREVENT trial alone.

In 2019, ImpediMed launched its comprehensive Lymphedema Prevention Program, with the goal of ending cancer-related lymphedema. Since its launch, ImpediMed has announced multiple partnerships with leading institutions globally. Publication of ImpediMed's PREVENT Trial statistically significant three-year primary endpoint results, which demonstrated that routine monitoring with L-Dex combined with at-home intervention resulted in a 92% reduction in lymphedema progression, also contributed to further adoption of SOZO for lymphedema prevention.
