Urovalve, a privately-held company specialising in disorders associated with urinary flow and control, has appointed a former senior executive at Kodak as senior business advisor. Martin Coyne spent 18 years at Eastman Kodak, where he held various management roles in sales, advertising, marketing and business development, according to Urovalve. He has served as chairman of diagnostic medical devices company Welch Allyn, and was a member of the executive committee of US medtech industry association AdvaMed. The Newark, New Jersey-based company is looking to benefit from Mr Coyne's "extensive experience" in the healthcare industry to grow its business – the firm is planning to initiate a pilot study this year of its Surinate bladder management system, a device designed for use by men who suffer from acute or chronic urinary retention.
