About Neo Medical:
Neo Medical has developed a completely new and patented set of tools, screws, and implants for spine surgery. This kit is easier to use for surgeons than standard decades-old technology and reduces operating time, allowing for cost savings. It renders sterilization unnecessary and reduces the risk of infections.

About Artiria:
Artiria has developed a next-generation guidewire to be used in brain surgery necessary after strokes (230’000 operations p.a. in Europe and US). Thanks to micro-engineering developed at EPFL, the guidewire has a moveable tip. This ability to manoeuver in small arteries speeds up surgeries which is beneficial for patient recovery and hospital’s finances.
