Contego Medical

The partners at Contego Medical approached FPS after realizing the headache in having a website that was built, hosted and maintained by an offshore team. Their existing site wasn’t easily updated and was not built upon a Content Management System (CMS) like WordPress.

They needed us to built them a new site with a simple design, hosted on WordPress for extensibility and easy updates.

Contego Medical, founded in 2005, has developed a family of novel emboli protection devices. The main feature of each device is that the treatment portion (i.e., balloon or stent) is on the same catheter as the embolic protection device, thus coupling the two together. This device can act as an angioplasty balloon with an integrated emboli protection device. If a stent is mounted on the balloon, it can serve as a stent with an integrated emboli protection device.
