Company to Heighten Focus on New Products and Technologies to Support Tibiopedal Retrograde Access, Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR), and Sensor-Based Guidewires

Lake Region Medical, an original development and manufacturing partner (ODM) to leading medical device companies, will highlight its capabilities, services and technologies at the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) conference in Miami, Florida.

“Our investment in research and development is a critical part of our global strategy. This enables Lake Region to expand its expertise in areas such as retrograde access, transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), and sensor-based guidewires,” said Jim Mellor, Vice President of Marketing and Sales at Lake Region. “Lake Region is committed to the development of innovative new products and technologies that improve patient outcomes through the advancement of minimally-invasive solutions. Our research and development of sensor-based technology is particularly promising as it facilitates the addition of electromechanical and sensor-based capabilities onto guidewires while maintaining performance characteristics critical to achieving clinical success.”

“Over the past three years — through major investments in clinical training initiatives as well as four fully-staffed physician review boards addressing each of our core markets (Cardiovascular/Structural Heart, Peripheral Vascular, Neurovascular and Stimulation therapies) — Lake Region has uniquely positioned itself as a value partner,” said Ron Von Wald, Global Marketing Director of Lake Region. “With this clinical knowledge, we are able to understand many of our partner’s technical challenges from a clinical perspective, and provide value-based solutions, especially as it pertains to access and delivery of therapies.”

Lake Region Medical will be exhibiting at TCT October 22 – 26 at booth # 841.
