Where we’ve come from
Veryan was founded in 2005 as the result of a technology spin out from Imperial College, London, based on the pioneering work by Professor Colin Caro (Emeritus Professor of Physiological Mechanics, Dept. of Bioengineering Imperial College) on the link between vessel geometry, blood flow mechanics and vascular disease.
Veryan used its understanding of swirling flow and its expertise in research and development to design, develop and patent the highly innovative three-dimensional (3D), nitinol (nickel-titanium alloy) BioMimics 3D Vascular Stent System.
