Goals and Values

Acandis GmbH is a German, owner-managed medical devices company based in Pforzheim.

We specialise in the development, manufacture and marketing of products for the treatment of neurovascular diseases. Our products are used by interventional neuroradiologists for the prevention and treatment of strokes.

We see ourselves as a reliable, forward-thinking partner, supporting clinical users with innovative products for the neuro-interventional prevention and treatment of strokes – for the benefit of patients.

Our work is focused on user-oriented research and development based on a sound knowledge of process technology – Engineering Stroke Solutions!


Our Passion

As a dynamic team that is highly motivated, creative and proactive, we are committed to tackling technical and medical challenges. Technology and innovation are what drive us – and "miniaturisation" is our motto.

The pathway to our product ideas starts with a comprehensive understanding of the symptoms, diagnostics and treatment options and continues to the detailed analysis of the technical viability. This enables us to offer solutions that are both innovative and user-oriented.

In the manufacture of our products, we make use of innovative technologies and wide-ranging expertise in the area of Nitinol processing and surface treatment.


Our Mission

We are constantly refining our products and services, setting new standards in the interventional treatment of neurovascular diseases, deliberately making intense use of  inventions, specialist literature, conferences and detailed discussions with users.

Together with qualified partners such as research facilities and clinical centres, we work on scientific matters on a broad basis in order to open up the possibilities for the treatment of intracranial vessel diseases and to be able to offer patients therapy options being constantly improved.

In order to be able to ensure the top quality and maximum precision of our products, we cooperate among others closely with the world market leader in the manufacture of self-expanding vascular implants.


Our Vision

We intend to continue making improvements in the prevention and treatment of strokes with innovative, miniaturised medical devices and to grow over the next few years into an independent global specialist that offers a wide product portfolio for neuro-interventionalists.
