When designing neurovascular products, maximizing performance while minimizing the deliverable profile is essential. Understanding the desired delivery method and the materials required to engineer an effective precision-controlled component are crucial to the design & development process. Secant Medical combines advanced materials with biomedical textile forming technologies to enable the minimally invasive expansion and compaction of critical neurovascular devices.

           
           Nitinol Circular Knit

A variety of materials can be used to achieve the specialized characteristics for devices used in ischemic stroke prevention and aneurysm repair. Metals such as nitinol and cobalt chromium are selected for their stiffness, precision and shape memory, while platinum provides radiopacity.
 
Our cross-functional team develops biomedical structures that have definitive benefits to neurovascular devices, including shape-transforming capabilities, controlled porosity, and low-profile fabrics as thin as
40-50 μm.
