ABOUT US

Electroducer is a startup founded in 2018 focusing on designing, developing and commercializing medical devices to simplify and secure percutaneous cardiovascular interventions.

The company is based in Grenoble, a French Alps dynamic pole in the Medtech industry.

History of the company

It all started in 2011 with the experience of Dr Benjamin FAURIE, Interventional cardiologist at the Cardiovascular Institute of Grenoble, who during the first percutaneous aortic valve replacement (TAVI) interventions made the painful observation of a high number of fatal complications.
Complications not related to the prosthesis itself but rather to the accessories or the techniques for implanting them, for example the need to use a temporary pacemaker to stun the heart or revive it during valve or stent implantations. He then wanted to change that and thus created the technique of direct cardiac stimulation through the TAVI guidewire: the Direct Wire Pacing (DWP) which avoids the use of pacemakers and their complications.

Our vision

Electroducer aims to reach beyond boundaries to increase efficiency solutions to every patient in a minimally invasive and safe spirit. Electroducer develops a universal and users’-based strategy to offer solutions that will become a new standard for all interventional cardiac procedures requiring temporary pacing and be the market leader in this field.

Our mission

Electroducer mission is to improve current surgical treatments helping many patients as possible, particularly reducing complications during percutaneous cardiovascular interventions.
The company’s ambition is to develop medical devices integrating the minimalist approach to optimize percutaneous valves implantations (aortic, mitral, tricuspid) and complex coronary interventions allowing:

– Shortening procedures
– Reduction of radiation exposure
– Cost reduction
– Easy to operate for healthcare professionals
– More effective, more reliable and less invasive procedures
– Reduction of complication and convalescence time

Electroducer activities are guided by the challenging economic and regulatory context and by the founder’s vision focused on the patient and are supported by partnerships with internationally renowned experts, hospitals and industrial partners.

Our team is composed by healthcare professionals in direct contact with the final customers and by employees with experience in the medical device field. Our Quality system exists to deliver innovative products that meet customer and regulatory requirements, making these minimalist interventions accessible to a wide number of patients. This quality policy addresses quality in its most original sense, namely the degree of fulfillment of a product’s characteristic which meets the medical needs.

With our technology we are engaged:

  • For the patient: to reduce pain, to reduce the invasive nature of the procedures, to reduce the exposure to x-rays, to reduce the duration of the intervention and the hospitalization time.
  • For the operators: to reduce the occupational health risks related to x-rays exposure and lead apron wearing, to reduce the intervention duration and simply make these procedures easier.
  • For the health system/ health institutions: to reduce costs associated to the percutaneous cardiovascular interventions. Focused on the minimalist interventions, we intend to be one of the market leaders of this field.
