Where did our name come from?

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

Wahoo for clinicians.

Wahoo is a dual-mode catheter that allows physicians to easily switch between tracking and support modes on demand during a clinical case. In a sea of access catheters, Wahoo swims alone, putting control into the clinicians hands in the most time-sensitive, urgent moments they encounter.

How Wahoo works.

Inject 0.2cc of saline, and Wahoo goes into track mode, becoming soft and flexible for tracking into distal neurovasculature. Apply vacuum and Wahoo transitions into support mode, maintaining its shape and resists bending.
