Ridgeback Technologies not only provide normal catheter balloons, we also provide Perfusion Balloons, Cutting Balloons and Sensor Balloons with highly competitive lead times due to our in-house resources covering all aspects of Balloon Design and Manufacture.
For many years it has been a desire of medical device manufacturers to have a Perfusion Balloon. This has never been properly achieved due to the complexity of Balloon Manufacture, until now. Ridgeback Technologies have created an innovative and highly efficient Perfusion Balloon that fulfils all the functions required while still having the same basic architecture to bond to existing catheter platforms.
These Perfusion Balloons take the form of two lobe or three lobe designs which allow for up to 50% Perfusion abilities during deployment.
See attached pictures of a two-lobe design. The advantage of this balloon is it can compliment existing catheter matrices as the balloon can be bonded as per a normal balloon without any special requirements.
These balloons are ideal for drug eluting capabilities, heart valve deployment etc. They come in a range from 5mm diameter up to 35mm diameter.
Whatever your future requirements we would be delighted to work with you on your innovative and exciting projects using this technology.
