Healionics is a clinical-stage company addressing the critical need for safer, more reliable means of bloodstream access to perform dialysis in patients with kidney failure. Our STARgraft vascular graft (synthetic blood vessel) is designed to resist the problems of infection and occlusion suffered by current devices. We also have an exciting product pipeline based on our platform STAR® biomaterial, which has a unique ability to prevent two serious problems that affect all implantable devices: scarring and infection. The company has completed a first human study of STARgraft and has 33 patents issued or pending.
Healionics was recently selected as a “Top 50 MedTech Startup” in the 2021 Medtech Innovator Showcase competition and, as such, will be a featured presenter at both the WSGR Medical Device Conference in June and AdvaMed MedTech Conference in September.
