Corporate social responsibility and sustainability

Vascular Flow’s novel technology was developed from Ninewells Hospital (teaching hospital in Dundee, Scotland) by 3 physicians Professor Peter Stonebridge, Dr John Dick and Professor Graeme Houston. We launched our first product in late 2008 and a second product in June 2010. We have ambitious plans to grow our business globally and for surgeons and patients all over the world to benefit from Spiral Flow™ products.
