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
Welcome the future of advanced thrombectomy solutions—Hippo and Cheetah, an unparalleled symbiosis of aspiration excellence.
With my adaptive features for precise clot engagement and removal, seamlessly guided by Cheetah’s tailored design and flexible navigation, witness innovation at its peak. Embrace the future—where aspiration meets innovation.
Together, we jump straight in without wasting time on complex prep or navigation hangups. We are setting the standard in trackability for effortless navigation.
So what sets us apart? For starters, we are designed to work together. That’s what partners do. With minimal ledge effect, we glide along as a single system, easily tackling turns to get wherever you need us fast. Once there, my novel tip design adapts to the clot and you can confirm clot engagement under fluoroscopy.
We allow fast and easy navigation as a single system that delivers my optimized 0.072” inner diameter to a variety of anatomical locations with speed and precision.
My adaptive tip unlocks total control over clot ingestion. With the ability to adapt to different clot morphologies and sizes, I provide a comprehensive approach that increases the likelihood of complete clot removal. Don’t settle for one-size-fits-all solutions—choose me for customized mastery in thrombectomy procedures.
My flex-zone offers unmatched flexibility precisely where you need it. Conquer the challenges of tortuous neurovasculature with a catheter that adapts, bends, and maintains a strong grip throughout the retrieval process. Choose Hippo—make the turn.
My (5) radiopaque tantalum petals act as your guide, offering real-time insight as the catheter approaches the face of the clot. Physicians can navigate with confidence, making informed decisions that lead to successful thrombectomy outcomes. Choose me for more information at every turn.
I go beyond conventional aspiration catheters with my adaptive tip. My increased surface area ensures an unparalleled grip on the clot, minimizing the chances of slippage or incomplete removal. When success matters, choose Hippo—the catheter that anchors your confidence in every procedure.
Ultimately, my physique comes down to the particulars. From my 132cm usable length to my 0.072-inch ID and uniquely adaptable tip, I am powerful and mighty. Have a closer look.
I am the tailored guide for Hippo that minimizes ledge effect and
My technology is FDA-cleared, but I am always eager to show what I can do firsthand.
