Our story began in Oslo in 2012. Founder Dr. Marte Bratlie was working in a center for sexual and reproductive health and was faced with the cumbersome task of removing contraceptive implants.
Surprised by the lack of innovation in the procedure, she looked to other clinicians and found recurring frustration and even unwillingness to perform the procedure.
Fueled by a desire to revolutionize implant removal, she launched a medical device startup and began the development of the RemovAid™ device.
We believe that the RemovAid™ device has the potential to improve women's access to contraceptive implant removal services on a global scale.
We are an ISO 13485:2016 certified company who specializes in the development, manufacture and distribution of medical devices which remove subdermal implants. Our first product, the RemovAid™, is a class IIa medical device designed remove single-rod contraceptive implants as an alternative to the standard implant removal procedure.
We believe the scalable nature of our technology platform combined with our expertise sets the stage for the development of applications beyond contraceptive implant removal, including implants used for heart monitoring, diabetes management and drug delivery systems. While each unique implant will require a specific solution, we believe our platform can be effectively tailored towards these various applications.
