Q'Apel Medical, formed in 2015, is a medical device company founded with the sole purpose of developing best-in-class technology for neurovascular interventions. Products include the walrus Balloon Guide Catheter (BGC) and the wahoo Access Catheter (AC).
The walrus BGC, with its 087 ID, marks a big step forward in balloon guide catheter technology and for stroke patients worldwide. Until now, widespread adoption of BGCs has been limited due to technical constraints. The walrus BGC was specifically designed to address these technical shortcomings with an 087 ID in a highly trackable catheter platform.
