About IRRAflow

IRRAS has developed and commercialized a revolutionary intelligent brain fluid management device stemming from its core IRRAflow technology that addresses the complications associated with the occurrence of hemorrhagic stroke.  Currently available devices do not address the complications that lead to death because they do not prevent occlusion (or blockage) in the catheter during treatment and they do not accurately monitor intracranial pressure (ICP). IRRAS' products provide a transformative solution for stroke and hematoma patients with less invasiveness and more efficacy, through the integration of aspiration, targeted infusion and intracranial pressure monitoring in a single robust device.

IRRAS AB is a commercial-stage medical technology company formed to develop and commercialize breakthrough devices for a broad range of intracranial bleeding applications and procedures. IRRAflow is the company's flagship commercial medical device that provides intelligent, dynamic control of CNS fluids to address the complications associated with the occurrence of hemorrhagic stroke. With its unique product portfolio, protected by key intellectual property patents and patent applications, IRRAS is well-positioned to improve patient outcomes and establish a leadership position in the medical device market.
