About BioFuse Medical Technologies, Inc.

BioFuse Medical Technologies’ first product offering, SurgiFuse® is a new RF tissue sealing and welding technology. Using transformative technology, proven in Europe in thousands of cases, this surgical innovation replaces traditional methods of sutures, staples, and electrosurgical vessel sealing. SurgiFuse® is a platform technology that can address a broad range of clinical applications, includes a robust pipeline of products in various stages of development, solid IP protection and trade secrets.

SurgiFuse® is an advanced high-frequency electrosurgical system that incorporates a unique and proprietary way of controlling and delivering energy to and through the target tissue. In studies, SurgiFuse® tissue fusion has been shown to be stronger than mechanical closure, creates a continuous seam in the tissue, and leaves no foreign bodies behind. SurgiFuse® encompasses the proprietary use of low voltages and high currents, optimized specifically for the tissue to be fused. In addition, energy output to the tissue occurs in pulses. These computer-controlled energy pulses create optimal temperatures that unravel large molecules in the tissue and as these molecules cool, they become intertwined and create a fusion.

This technology will serve a large and growing target market of $3 billion. Market data indicates a strong and growing demand for advanced, innovative devices that facilitate evolving surgical procedural techniques and vastly improved patient outcomes. Surgeons are looking for new technology that will eliminate scars and lower leakage and infection rates.
