Anti-migration technology for implanted medical devices.

Less worry,
better care

Our Hoowaki MicroGrip™ technology prevents device migration and lets you focus on what’s important: giving the best care.

Medical Applications

  • GI and pulmonary stents
  • Barrier films
  • Cardiac repair devices
  • Cardiac assist devices
  • Balloons
  • Hernia meshes
  • Laparoscopic and robotic grasper and stapler jaws

Simplifies Approval

• Formed during existing device manufacturing
• No added chemicals, coatings, or materials
• Made of same material as device
• Never sticky, abrasive, or aggressive
• Offers a simple route for device qualification; often 510(k)

Mission: Solving the most challenging grip or slip problems

High grip, specialty films:

  • High grip, non-traumatic, no ingrowth, easy device removal
  • High grip, non-traumatic, ingrowth, long-term anchoring
  • Medical approved materials such as silicone rubber, TPU, TPE

Biological collection devices: Hoowaki MicroGrip® NP Collection Swab Manufacturing of components with high grip for medical devices:

  • Anti-migration components for self expanding stent medical devices 
  • High grip anchoring components for implanted film-based or mesh devices
  • Structural anchoring components for cardiac and vascular devices
  • High grip, easy release components for jaws for graspers and staplers

Service of adding micro surfaces to tooling:

  • Dies to make low friction tubing
  • Molds for low friction, non-tacky, rubber components
  • Molds to make high grip components
