Metropolitan Region Eindhoven (MRE) provides a stimulus grant to support a new development program between STENTiT and Wellinq. With the funding, a dedicated balloon catheter will be made for the regenerative stent. This balloon catheter is an essential component of the delivery system to place the regenerative stent inside the blood vessel of a patient.
We are very please that with the financial support from the region, our long-standing collaboration can be further intensified to get the regenerative stent another step closer to the patients.
STENTiT is a medical device company focusing on the development of regenerative endovascular implants. These bioresorbable devices trigger a natural healing response by the circulating blood cells, in which the implant is being replaced by new vascular tissue to restore the artery from the inside-out.
Since the establishment of the company, STENTiT has received broad international recognition and awards for its high-potential approach, covering world leading stages. As the company is currently going through the next translational phases, STENTiT is on its way to fulfill its ambition to become the new standard in endovascular treatment, providing a life-changing solution for millions of cardiovascular patients around the world.
