Onux Medical

ONUX Medical is a privately held medicaldevice company located in Hampton , New Hampshire - 45 miles from Boston, Massachusetts. ONUX was founded in 1996 with the mission to: "Develop technologies that enable surgeons to perform minimally invasive operations, which greatly improve the surgical outcome and recovery of patients". An extremely aggressive product development schedule is on track to support this mission. Some technologies and products are immediately available to address the closure and suturing market while other patented products especially in the Cardiovascular market are still under development. GENERAL SURGERY ONUX commercialized two platform technologies for suturing and mesh fixation during minimally invasive surgical procedures; both products enable the surgeon to perform procedures in an uncomplicated manner and less tediously. The Touché “uturing System is a needle-free, 5mm, minimally invasive instrument, capable of producing 50 sutures without "removing the instrument from the surgical site. The Instrument is reusable, autoclavable, and uses the Company's proprietary disposable suturing cartridges. The Salute Mesh Fixation Device easily secures prosthetic mesh to the surgical site by compressing a lever. Salute is a much more patient friendly device that reduces pain, causes no nerve damage, and is not subject to migration;it can also be attached to the edge of the mesh to eliminate roll-up. Salute is a 5mm, reusable device capable of deploying 20 round constructs form a single disposable cartridge. CARDIOVASCULAR ONUX has designed, patented and plans to market devices in Interventional Cardiology and Cardiovascular Surgery. ONUX has developed two products for the Femoral Artery Closure market. One device replicates the current practice of manually applying pressure to the wound without the use of a caregiver. The other device uses the Company's patented Force Capturing Technology to suture the wound closed. Both products are being developed with the support of leading interventional cardiologists. ONUX has developed a minimally invasive fixation system off the Salute platform to easily install heart valves. This product has several patented designs with experiments currently underway to finalize development. ONUX has developed an anastomotic connector for the attachment of bypass grafts, which significantly reduces metal contact in the blood path. SLA samples are available and initial indications are that application will enable surgeons to quickly perform this procedure with minimum trauma. ONUX Medical is targeting high growth areas of minimally invasive surgery with products that are clearly differentiated, simple and improve surgical outcome.
