We’re called Q’Apel for the Qu’Appelle River, a waterway that winds through Saskatchewan, Canada. Why? Because this pristine river charts a winding path, full of twists, turns, and straightaways alike. That’s what we do, too. Our cutting-edge products—neurological catheters, specifically—are designed to navigate the twists and turns of the brain’s neurovasculature, empowering therapeutic thrombectomy and cerebral aneurysm devices to deliver life-changing outcomes.Who We Are
Armadillo is a radial-access catheter that empowers caregivers to access neurovasculature using a powerfully progressive technique. With dual-mode adaptability and a slick yet highly trackable construction, Armadillo is a solid option for the patient and a flexible one for the physician.
Inject 0.2cc of saline, and Armadillo goes into track mode, becoming soft and flexible for tracking into distal neurovasculature. Apply vacuum and Armadillo transitions into support mode, maintaining its shape and resisting bending.
From its sleek fabrication to its powerful functionality, Armadillo is designed to deliver. And these handy video resources ensure you have the answers you need at your fingertips.
