(AOTI), the global leader in noninvasive topical oxygen wound healing solutions, announced today they have closed a significant round of growth funding from the leading specialist finance company, SWK Holdings Corporation (Nasdaq: SWKH).

AOTI is experiencing rapidly growing demand for its revolutionary cyclically pressurized Topical Wound Oxygen (TWO2) wound healing therapy.
TWO2 therapy is now well established as the leading evidence based topical oxygen treatment modality applied by patients at home, proven to provide more durable complete healing for chronic wounds, such as diabetic foot ulcers and venous leg ulcers.

Such previously unseen outcomes significantly improve the patient's quality and quantity of life, while reducing strained healthcare resource utilization and costs.
Dr. Mike Griffiths, CEO and President for AOTI, commented: "We are delighted to be partnering with such an innovative industry focused lender as SWK, who not only bring the capital resources we need to build out our organization to meet the rapidly growing demand for TWO2, but also possess a wealth of experience from working with dynamic growing companies in the MedTech space.
