The Company:

They have been around 12 years and were funded by investors initially and then a global Pharma company acquired them and now they are firing on all cylinders, hiring in Germany and US as well as UK and Ireland.

They have one product on the market here that is CE marked, approved in the US Oct, 2018 and moving towards approval in APAC!

Their technology aims to replicate nature, as such, their stent is a helical shape, designed to mimic the natural geometry of the vascular system. This is genuinely ground-breaking in the stent world which has previously been governed by tired technology in one if the biggest killers in the world - heart disease. Rather than being situated in the heart it is designed to be in the leg to help prevent clots and keep things moving - the shape is designed to encourage blood to swirl through.

They are also looking into having a drug on board as well to create a combination product... watch this space!
