The TrackCath system, a patented sensing technology, measures blood flow velocity. Applied to TrackCath access catheter, the technology identifies small blood vessel orifices for cannulation purposes. The TrackCath system aims to replace X-ray and contrast media during minimally invasive cardiovascular procedures, for improved patient safety. TrackCath met primary and secondary endpoint in a 40-patient multi-center first in human clinical trial in Germany. Commercialization will begin in Q4-19 in top EVAR centers in WE. Medyria has a sustainable business model, made of a disposable 8 French sensor guided Catheter, cost neutral for the hospital and a Flow Monitoring Unit & monitor on consignment (No Capex for the hospital).
Blood flow velocity sensing technology applied to catheters serves as a platform to address an array of potential applications in the human vascular system. Our strategy is to focus on EVAR applications first, then expand into the larger Aortic and Coronary markets.
Infusion pumps are widely used in hospitals. Frequently occurring safety and accuracy problems with infusion pumps can lead to severe medical complications. Swiss Medtech start-up 1nfusion develops a new generation of infusion pumps based on a proprietary sensor technology which are characterized by safety, accuracy and ease of use. The first product FlowBox is already in successful clinical use.
