What Professionals Say

Medical equipment testimonials

Great cost-saving potential

“The reduction of incorrectly placed drains that require repeat surgeries could save substantial costs in the form of shortened hospital stays for the patient.”

A market opportunity

“The insertion of a chest tube is one of the most common procedures in thoracic surgery. There is a potentially huge market for a medical device that enhances the frequency of well-placed chest tubes.”

Good news for surgeons and patients alike

“As an innovator, my main motivation was to solve a known medical issue -- a tool that guides the drain gently and accurately to the precise spot where it’s needed. As a surgeon, I wanted a tool all surgeons could use to do a better job treating patients,”
Dr. Niels Katballe, thoracic surgeon and Pleuratech co-founder
