Asheville manufacturer to distribute Theraworx product to improve veteran health

Asheville, NC (December 2, 2014) — Avadim Technologies, Inc. announced today its patented Theraworx Technology will be available to Veteran’s Administration and Department of Defense facilities through the Federal Supply Systems (FSS) contract with distribution partner, ADS, Inc.

Avadim’s patented Theraworx product and patent-pending protocols have demonstrated a proven ability to help hospitals control hospital-acquired conditions. The unique Theraworx formula helps preserve the body’s natural skin function, by preventing dry skin and helping to maintain the natural acidic, anti-microbial nature of the skin’s outermost layer.

Steve Woody, Avadim Technologies CEO, “Avadim is gratified and pleased to now be able to serve our nation’s veterans and active duty military personnel,” thanking both the GSA and VA for its rapid action on this FSS contract addition request by ADS.

Shain Bobbitt, ADS Medical Market Manager said, “The successful addition of Avadim products to the ADS Federal Supply Schedule is a great victory for our Veteran’s health. We are very excited for our partnership with Avadim and the opportunity to provide Theraworx to the Veteran’s Administration Hospitals.” For more information on Theraworx, visit
