Often Medical

Often Medical, a spin-off of University of Sannio, has developed a sensorized epidural catheter that, through continuous strain and bending measurements, provides real time alerts when it is correctly placed inside the epidural space, without resorting to complex and harmful external guidance systems.

The correct placement of both the needle and catheter for administering drug into the epidural space is a challenging procedure, characterized by failure rates up to 30%. Often Medical’s mission is to make epidural anaesthesia a procedure 100% safe and effective.
