Welcome to Ebnet Medical – for patient safety and positive economic impact
Vascular access is life-saving, with billions of catheters being used per year in a growing market.
Numerous studies describe very high complication rates with tremendous additional costs.
Up to 69% of common (peripheral) venous catheters fail.(1)
Premature removal of common venous catheters leads to conservatively estimated additional costs of 1.5 billion US dollars per year in the US alone.(2)
In up to 54% of children, the vein is not successfully accessed on the first attempt.(3)
The annual costs resulting from unintentional dislodgement of common venous catheters amount to over 266 million US dollars in the US alone.(4)
Common vascular catheters frequently kink, posing potentially life-threatening consequences such as circulatory arrest. The idea of tubes kinking would be considered unthinkable in numerous non-medical contexts.
We focus on the development of safe and cost-effective platform technologies within the leading intellectual property portfolio for next-generation vascular access.
We truly understand patient and user needs and focus on crucial improvements.
