Implantica is a medtech group dedicated to bringing innovative advances in technology into the body. Medical implants previously seen as unachievable will seek to alleviate unmet medical needs.
The Company’s lead product RefluxStop™ is a passive CE-marked implant for prevention of gastroesophageal reflux. RefluxStop™ has a completely different design thesis than existing current surgical gastroesophageal reflux disease treatments and has achieved excellent results in its CE mark clinical investigation. The Company believes RefluxStop™ has the potential to spur a paradigm shift in anti-reflux surgery as supported by the clinical trial results.

Implantica’s eHealth platform e-InVivo is subject to further development and approval process.
