OrthoAccel signs distributors in Australia, S. Korea

OrthoAccel Technologies has signed distribution agreements with AB Orthodontics in Melbourne, Australia, and Inno Dental and Medical (Inno DMC) in Seoul, South Korea.

The company's AcceleDent system is currently being sold to orthodontic specialists in the U.K. and is slated for general market release there in September, according to OrthoAccel. The device, used to speed up the rate of orthodontic treatment, is intended for 20 minutes of daily use.

"Australia and South Korea are key international markets for us and allow us to develop product awareness and success stories in advance of a future release in other international markets and the U.S.," said Mike Kaufman, vice president of marketing and business development for OrthoAccel, in a press release.

The agreement with Inno DMC marks OrthoAccel's first move into the Asia-Pacific region.

Although commercial sales are not anticipated until next year because regulatory details must be finalized, efforts to begin increasing awareness and educating dental professionals will begin immediately, the company said.
