We collaborate with you to design and manufacture custom biomedical structures that exhibit a variety of functional behaviors and performance characteristics:
  • Mimic the body’s native structures
  • Rapid integration within the body
  • Flexibility
  • Controlled porosity, density, and absorbability
  • Shape memory
  • Radial and tensile strength
  • Thin and compact for low-profile delivery

Low and Ultra Low Profile Medical Fabric

Secant Medical Components offers Low and Ultra Low Profile medical fabric to help streamline our customer development of next-generation EVAR, heart valve devices, and other cardiovascular applications. This state-of-the-art textile enables transcatheter delivery by minimizing fabric thickness and can be customized to meet device performance requirements.  Engineered with PET fibers using our woven fabric-forming technology, Secant Medical Components offers eight variations of our qualified low-profile materials.

Our custom designed fabrics can be tuned to meet any performance criteria and can be cut and packaged to meet your specifications. Medical device manufacturers can work with the Secant Group development engineering teams to design a unique fabric component to meet their device requirements. Full characterization of the material, including physical, and performance properties are also available.
