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
I’m a new sort of catheter for a transradial approach. My radial-access system is elegantly tailored to the demands of accessing neurovasculature through the radial pathway. Plus, I’m optimized with two modes for seamless adaptation.
The radial access approach is revolutionizing what’s possible in neurovascular procedures—and I’m a front-line partner for caregivers propelling the profession forward. With my dual-mode capabilities and slick construction, I’m a solid option for the patient and a flexible one for the physician.
So how do I stand apart? For starters, I’m optimized with two distinct operational modes—tracking mode and support mode—for seamless adaptation during a clinical case. Plus, my proprietary SelectFlex technology means I enable control, trackability, support, and access in one powerful solution. In short, I’m a critical step forward in serving the most complex interventions.
When it comes to radial access, a slim profile is key—but so is superior support. With my kink-resistant construction, powerful coil design, and SelectFlex variable stiffness technology, I can navigate even the most delicate tortuosity, providing a tremendously stable platform.
With an all-in-one system and accompanying dilator accessory, I navigate acute bends with strength that outstrips my size and agility in the slimmest spots. How do I do it? With transition zones generated specifically for navigating through the anatomy from a radial approach.
Ultimately, my physique comes down to the particulars. From my usable length to my optimal outer diameter—and let’s not forget my SelectFlex technology—I’m made to deliver. Have a closer look.
For us, accolades matter little—but actions are everything. Read up on our most recent innovations, certifications, and the clinical results that continue to deliver on our promise of revolutionary answers in stroke care.
My FDA-cleared technology has been consistently supported in clinical literature—but I’m always eager to show what I can do firsthand.
