Valencia, who has more than 30 years of experience in leadership roles in the healthcare and technology industries, was previously interim president and CEO of WaveForm Diabetes, as well as a member of the board of directors of Tandem Diabetes Care, which experienced a significant increase in the market during Valencia's tenure.
“Accessibility to the SOZO digital health platform is more important than ever and the future opportunity to monetise the patient testing data will eventually create an entirely new market segment for the company,” stated Valencia.
ImpediMed's SOZO platform is a non-invasive device that can provide a quick and accurate snapshot of fluid status and tissue composition in a patient with lymphedema.
