Asahi Intecc CEO Masahiko Miyata said: “By combining Asahi’s guidewire design and manufacturing technology and experience with Sensome’s core competencies, the companies position themselves to create a new generation of smart guidewires at a high level of performance, reliability and consequently, value to physicians and patients.”

Clotild incorporates Sensome’s artificial intelligence-powered tissue micro-sensor.

This device offers crucial information related to the clot feature for physicians to implement more informed decisions during the procedure.

Furthermore, the tissue sensing technology has the capability to integrate into minimally invasive medical devices used in other treatment areas, including oncology and peripheral vascular disease.

Sensome CEO Franz Bozsa said: “This collaboration underscores our dedication to pioneering smart medical devices designed to address the present shortcomings of minimally invasive procedures in partnership with world-class medical device manufacturers.”
