K-One Technology Berhad has received approval from the Medical Device Authority to distribute and sell silicone adhesive tapes primarily used for wound care dressing.
The group through its medical arm will sell the silicone adhesive tapes in Malaysia as an authorized representative of Wuhan Huawei Technology Co., Ltd which is the manufacturer based in China.
WH Tech, the developer and manufacturer of silicone adhesive tapes is based in Wuhan, Hubei, China. It specialises in developing, manufacturing, and marketing various advanced wound dressings and other medical products. Since its establishment in 2002, WH Tech has been accorded with ISO 9001, ISO 13485, FDA and CE certifications.
The product will be distributed by K-One MediTech a wholly-owned subsidiary of K-One Tech which is primarily focused on the development, manufacturing, and supply of medical and healthcare products including medical devices, healthcare consumables, oral care gadgets, and hospital equipment.
The silicone adhesive tapes are advanced wound dressings that come in three product types. The first two product categories are applicable to a variety of indwelling catheters, electrodes, or other external fixations that require gentle but robust skin protection and adhesion, while the third product type helps to improve scar appearance (including hypertrophic and keloid) and restores skin to more natural color and texture. It also alleviates itchy skin and discomfort associated with scars.
MDA has approved the distribution and sale of the above silicone adhesive tapes in three product categories for a period of five years from 26 September 2022 to 25 September 2027.
With the distribution and marketing process anticipated to commence immediately and sales progressively scaling up in the coming years, it is expected to contribute positively to the earnings of K-One Tech for the financial years ending 31 December 2022 and beyond.
