In a move that could potentially save lives, the United States Department of Veterans Affairs has announced that a Goldstar medical instrument lubrication device has been reissued for medical use.
In a statement, the VA said that Goldstar Lubrication Device has been a staple in the field of medical equipment since its introduction in 2011, and has helped thousands of veterans and their families to ease the pain of various health conditions and injuries.
“We are thrilled that the Veterans Affairs Administration has approved Goldstar for use in the United Kingdom as a first line of treatment for medical conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome,” said VA Secretary Dr. Kenneth A. Frazier.
“We look forward to expanding this important technology to other countries.”
The VA also noted that the FDA has approved the device for use as a primary medical device in the U.S. as of this past October, and Goldstar is currently available at more than 10,000 U.K. medical facilities.
“Goldstar Lubes are made from the finest materials and have been FDA approved for use for all FDA-approved uses, including the following: acute lower extremity injury, stroke, acute musculoskeletal trauma, and stroke, and trauma to the brain,” the VA stated.
“The devices are also approved for the treatment of other conditions, including Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, epilepsy, and asthma.”
Goldstar has also been a featured sponsor of the 2017 Veterans of Foreign Wars National Commemoration Ceremony, which honored veterans of all wars for their service to the U, and was the first medical device approved by the FDA for use during surgery.
