MED Alliance is pleased to announce its partnership with Vascugenix, the U.S. manufacturer of Speed-Torque®, an innovative device used during interventional procedures.

Invented by Interventional Cardiologist Dwight Chrisman, Speed-Torque is ergonomically designed to enable comfortable, one-handed guidewire manipulation during interventional procedures. It is engineered with a unique click-and-lock toggle to allow rapid position changes, improved visualization and guidewire control.

Traditional devices force the physician to lose sight of the guidewire on the view screen when repositioning. With Speed-Torque, clinicians can rapidly reposition the device without losing site or control of the guidewire. The device’s longer body length increases back support during wire manipulation when crossing tortuous lesions and chronic total occlusion, making procedures more efficient. Patient and staff safety are enhanced due to shorter fluoro time and decreased radiation exposure.

“We are confident our clinical customers who perform interventional procedures will appreciate the efficiency of the Speed-Torque,” said MED Alliance Group President Mike Schroeder. “Vascugenix has developed a product that will ultimately save interventionalists time, hospitals money and improve patient safety. We are excited to add Speed-Torque to our portfolio and share its benefits with our customers.”
