Tractivus and PHOBOSTech™ have been developed over the years as a solution to the current problems of medical devices. The technology was born as a collaboration between two highly prestigious research groups, GEMAT (IQS) and IDIBELL (Hosp. Univ. De Bellvitge). Tractivus combines the experience of the research groups and a unique solution designed to root out the colonization of the devices through a micro- and nano-structured coating that protects the device from adhesion and bacterial colonization. The team has worked on all aspects of the development: material selection, regulatory strategy, risk reduction, clinical trials, partners, stakeholders... aiming to maximize the success of both the project and the investors.
