Agile Devices is commercializing novel coaxial deflection technologies for faster, cheaper and safer interventional procedures. Our first product, the Angler™ microcatheter, has been designed for peripheral and coronary vascular interventions.
Our patented technology seeks to improve maneuverability with an actively controlled deflectable tip, to potentially enable quicker vessel navigation and reduced guidewire and catheter exchanges. Our goals are to reduce procedure time and cost, increase operating room availability, and most importantly, improve patient outcomes.
2016 – Proof of Concept Animal Study
Early stage Agile microcatheter prototypes were the only device to reach all 5 targets (from simple to very complex) within 3 minutes in every attempt in a porcine model versus two popular cleared microcatheters. The Angler™ device deflection worked well in-vivo and delivered embolic coils to the target.
