There is no happier situation for the organ than in the living body. Can technology provide as hospitable a place? Can engineering better the out-of-body trip between donor and recipient?
We make machines for organ transplantation. Portable warm perfusion devices that will help surgeons resuscitate, preserve, transport, evaluate, and transplant more deceased donor organs today and help unlock new sources that will solve the organ shortage tomorrow.
What is possible
Every organ transplant is a modern medical feat. Only the transplant surgeon transports life from one to another. Only the organ donor offers such a second chance.
But the chronic supply-demand imbalance of donor organs challenges the system and limits the access and the impact. The transplantation community hungers for new ideas and new technologies to push the boundaries and redefine what’s possible.
Meanwhile regenerative medicine promises an endless supply of manufactured organs. Lab-grown. Bioprinted. Cryobanked. Transgenic. But the journey from bench to bedside needs a new kind of donor. A machine to deliver the wholly functional organ. And Tevosol will be there.
Thousands wait. Millions could benefit.
Only 1 in 200 deaths even qualifies to donate.
How can we honour more people’s wishes?
Only 1 in 5 lungs offered is accepted for transplant.
How can we help surgeons accept more organs?
Only 1 in 3 waiting for lungs receives a transplant.
How can we triple the supply of organs?
About 1 in 5 are projected to die of respiratory diseases.
How can we fulfill the unmet medical need?
Built around the organ
Our machines recreate the living environment of the human body. Built around the organ. To present the surgeon a wholly functioning graft for clinical evaluation and decision to transplant.
Beginning with the lung, through superior engineering and design of a normothermic machine perfusion platform, Tevosol aims to break through current limitations—cold ischemia and other insults, time and distance, size and weight, portability and usability, reliability and cost—and make warm the norm.
Because someday all organ transplants will be performed via machines like ours. From deceased donors of every type and everywhere. From organ growers and manufacturers. From imagination to reality.
The natural advancement of human technology.
