The Fist Assist® device (US Patent 8231558) is an external medical intermittent pneumatic compression device that can apply intermittent pressure to a specific arm vein that may help dilate the vein after fistula placement.
There is a global need to provide better vein dilation methods and devices to sufficiently dilate a vein for hemodialysis, help mature fistulae, and help ensure that AVF reach their optimal size without extra delay and extra procedures.
Our Mission is to develop a novel, non-invasive, low cost device to:
Assist with Fistula Maturation
Assist with Venous Pre-surgery preparation
Decrease total catheter contact time and fistula development time
Significantly reduce costs in treating Stage 4 and ESRD markets
