NanoVibronix Announces Distribution Agreement with VA Supplier CB Medical for the Distribution of UroShield

NanoVibronix, Inc. (Nasdaq: NAOV) (“NanoVibronix,” or the “Company”), a medical device company that produces the UroShield®, PainShield® and WoundShield® Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) Portable Ultrasonic Therapeutic Devices, today announced that it has entered into a distribution agreement with CB Medical, LLC (“CB Medical”) for the sale and distribution of the Company’s UroShield.

UroShield is an ultrasound-based product designed to prevent bacterial colonization and biofilm on indwelling urinary catheters and increase antibiotic efficacy, ultimately reducing the incidence of catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI). UroShield is also intended to decrease pain and discomfort associated with urinary catheter use.

CB Medical is a U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (“VA”) certified and Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (“SDVOSB”) with two decades of experience serving veterans. Founded by an Iraq War veteran, CB Medical is committed to helping veterans and active-duty members live pain free. Under the terms of the multi-year agreement, CB Medical has the right to sell and distribute UroShield to its customers throughout the VA system in the United States.

Brian Murphy, Chief Executive Officer of NanoVibronix, Inc., commented, "This new agreement provides us with another distribution channel for UroShield within the VA system of providers. CB Medical has a national presence and is committed to helping veterans and active-duty members gain access to beneficial treatments. With millions of urinary catheters used both in and outside of hospitals every year, the risk of infection can be high. UroShield not only prevents infection but can also reduce the pain associated with urinary catheters. We are pleased to be able to add UroShield to CB Medical’s catalog for the benefit of veterans and to advance our efforts towards achieving broader distribution.”

Shawn Pinkston, President and Chief Executive Officer of CB Medical, commented, “We are committed to bringing world-class medical supplies and treatments to beneficiaries of the VA system. There are many veterans, particularly those with spinal injuries, who live with indwelling catheters and are therefore at constant risk of infection. We are pleased to now offer UroShield as both a preventative device for infection and to help reduce the discomfort of living with a urinary catheter.”
