It fulfills our purpose, because the Sorrel platform represents an important alternative for patients who previously had to rely on cumbersome treatment in a hospital or a large number of injections or infusions. We believe that Sorrel’s solutions will set a new standard for functionality, quality, reliability and patient comfort in wearables. The Sorrel platform is now ready for launch and will accelerate its scaling within the LTS organization while benefiting from LTS’ global reach and reputation. We are happy, dr. To welcome Andrei Yosef and his talented team to our company.
