[In the News] Growth within Radial Compression Device Market

The use of radial compression devices within the healthcare setting is rapidly rising in the United States and the United Kingdom. In North America traditional femoral artery access is still the used more often, but due to lower bleeding and lower site complications, radial access is growing considerably.

In the UK, more than 75% of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI, formerly known as angioplasty with stent) are administered through radial access. The paralleled rise in the occurrence of radial artery occlusion may be playing a factor in the increased demand for radial compression. Experts also note a desire to adopt procedures and proven innovative devices that help bring about positive patient experiences, medical savings, and shorter hospital stays.

To read more about how radial compression devices are gaining traction and will grow to a $330 million market in the U.S. by the end of 2026, click here.

Genesis Invests in ATOM Flashcut System as Part of Commitment to Continuous Improvement

At Genesis, we continuously seek to invest in our people, processes, and facilities in order to offer our clients the highest level quality possible. Most recently, we invested nearly $250,000 in an ATOM Flashcut 3020 B2 Knife Cutting System and supporting systems.

The ATOM Flashcut provides a turnkey solution for product design, prototyping and manufacturing and features powerful nesting software that maximizes the productivity of the operator as well as material yield. It is equipped with a conveyorized cutting surface and offers a dieless cutting solution for our customers across the medical device, military and consumer goods industries.

The new equipment is able to handle thermoplastic material up to 80-inches wide, which offers clients greater versatility in material selection. The cutting technology also allows our engineers to purchase fabrics in widths from our suppliers that best maximize efficiencies, and optimize manufacturing costs and production time.

During product development, for example, we are now able to use CAD drawings to cut exact size components without the additional purchase of cut tooling, allowing us to make product design changes more efficiently.

The addition of the ATOM Flashcut also allows for more tightly controlled processes through increased predictability and consistency. This robust system offers the reliability and precision necessary for clients who must meet strict quality standards such as ISO 13485.

This latest investment is part of our commitment to continuously improving our manufacturing processes in order to reduce variability, increase efficiency and ensure the safety and integrity of the end product. We’re excited to expand and refine our systems and continue offering customers innovative solutions that exceed their needs.
