Utilizing a twist on RFID technology, IntelligentM’s “SmartBand” offers hospitals the ability to monitor and improve the cleanliness of each individual health care employee on a 24/7 basis, something simply not feasible previously. In an environment where 70 percent of health care-acquired infections could be reduced or eliminated through proper hand hygiene (instead of costing the industry $35 billion annually), the potential benefits of such a device are tremendous. Yet a great idea does not necessarily translate into a marketing success if relevant audiences are unaware of its existence. Mindful of this fact, IntelligentM sought out a public relations agency that could draw media attention, and that also possessed the technological prowess to discern and target the audiences which could best propel the concept to industry-wide recognition, approval and adoption.

Erchonia Corporation, a world leader in low-level laser technology, created the low-level laser category when it received an FDA 510(k) market clearance for low-level lasers. It was the first company to receive this FDA 510(k) distinction – a premarketing submission to the FDA that demonstrates that the device is safe and effective. It’s the most rigorous type of device-marketing application the FDA accepts.
More than 35 million people seek treatment for onychomycosis (nail fungus). After receiving FDA 510(k) approval, Erchonia launched its newest low-level laser treatment: Lunula.
