Custom Embolic Protection Device Manufacturing
This is a class of products that plays an important role in preventing stroke after procedures such as TAVR. An embolic protection device acts as a physical barrier, preventing particles and debris from traveling to the brain, lungs, and kidneys where they can occlude critical passageways for blood and oxygen. Such occlusions can lead to difficulty breathing, stroke and, in severe cases, even death. ATEX Technologies can provide highly engineered woven or knit implantable textile components that can facilitate the capture of these particles by precisely controlling pore size, material type and overall dimensions. The key in engineering high performing textiles for this application is to manufacture medical textiles that can capture particles of many sizes effectively while also allowing for the flow of blood through the “filter”.
