The IontoPatch is an extended time-released electronic transdermal (iontophoretic) drug delivery medical device. An innovative, self-contained battery produces a low-level electric current to carry drug molecules non-invasively across the skin and to underlying tissue. Drug delivery is shut off automatically when the prescribed dose has been administered. The IontoPatch is single-use and disposable. No charging station or controller is needed. It is wrappable, compressible and weight-bearing. (Since there are no external batteries or wires, patients are able to return to their daily activities wearing the patch and receiving time-released iontophoresis.)
The IontoPatch is eligible for billing under the existing iontophoretic code. It is used primarily by physical therapists, occupational therapists and sports medicine professionals for site-specific therapy to treat a variety of conditions.
