PortIO

The three main current methods of long term vascular access all have a threat of occlusion and infection. PortIO inserts directly into the bone for marrow delivery to avoid the issues associated with intravascular treatments.

What makes PortIO Different?

It's Safer

  • Doesn't get occluded
  • Less invasive
  • Doesn't require fluoroscopy

 

It's Easier

  • Allows vascular access without an intravascular component
  • Unlimited access sites

 

It's Convenient

  • Can be done in an office setting or interventional suite instead of an operating room
  • Can be done by a less trained clinician

 

It Saves Money

  • Takes less time
  • Doesn't require fluoroscopy
  • Lower complication rates
  • Can be done by less expensive personnel

 

 

Caldus

When tissues such as tumors and precancerous tissues are ablated, the surrounding tissue often gets damaged in the process. Caldus uses hot water circulated through a balloon to destroy the target tissue without damaging the surrounded area.

What makes Caldus Different?

It's Safer

  • Heat is only deployed at the target surface

 

It's Easier

  • Completely disposable
  • Lower maintenance and storage overhead to surgical suites
  • Less complex logistics
  • Easier to distribute and ship

 

It Saves Money

  • Less expensive option for thermal ablation
  • Lower maintenance and storage costs for hospital systems

 

 

CarpX

One to two million people seek care for carpal tunnel syndrome every year. The treatment options are physical therapy, open surgery, and endoscopic surgery. CarpX is a percutaneous solution that would eliminate the need for open surgery. 

What makes CarpX Different?

It's Safer

  • Less invasive
  • Lower complication rate
  • Reduces risk of nerve damage
  • Doesn't require fluoroscopy
  • Faster healing
  • Reduced infection risk

 

It's Easier

  • Guide systems enable rapid deployment

 

It's Convenient

  • Shifts care from the operating room to an interventional suite or office setting

 

It Saves Money

  • Reduces worker's comp costs
  • Less expensive than open surgery
  • Faster recovery
  • Reduced reoccurrence rate

 

 

NextCath

Short-term catheters fall out 15-20% of the time during a 1-3 day hospital stay. There are products designed to keep them secure, but they cost extra money and are often uncomfortable or cheaply made. NextCath is a catheter designed to stay in without any additional securing devices such as wraps, straps or sutures.

What makes NextCath Different?

It's Safer

  • Decreases risk of pain, bleeding, vascular injury, complications, or death from catheter dislodging
  • Especially good at protecting central lines during patient transport

 

It's Easier

  • Faster to install and secure catheters while following existing clinical practice

 

It Saves Money

  • Eliminates the need for additional catheter securing devices
  • Reduces labor costs
  • Reduces complication costs

 

 

NextFlo

Current infusion pumps are designed to distribute medicine over a set period of time, but are extremely imprecise (+/-40%) and there are often potentially deadly mistakes. NextFlo is a simple infusion pump that uses a passive variable flow resistor to guarantee that the medicine is dispensed steadily over an accurate length of time. 

What makes NextFlo Different?

It's Safer

  • Decreases morbidity associated with current imprecise disposable pumps
  • Decreases morbidity associated with current complex traditional pumps
  • Simplifies medicine delivery

 

It's Easier

  • Simple color coding system helps nursing staff quickly set up infusion plans

 

It's Convenient

  • Shifts chronic drug therapy from outpatient ambulatory settings to the home

 

It Saves Money

  • Reduces the volume of the current #1 most used piece of capital equipment for hospitals
  • Reduces the associated CapEx, maintenance, repair, and storage costs for infusion pumps
  • Reduces nursing time
