Rafael Medical obtained EU CE Mark certification for the filter for both permanent and removal options in 2004.
The SafeFlo filter is an implanted expandable metal device used to capture hazardous blood clots caused by trauma, surgery or other medical conditions before they can reach the lungs, causing a pulmonary embolism. SafeFlo's design provides a double ring anchoring mechanism as an alternative to the standard strut-based designs of filters available on the market since the 1970s.
In late 2006, Rafael Medical raised $2.5 million at a company value of $16 million from Possis Medical Inc. (Nasdaq: POSS), which develops and makes cardiovascular and vascular treatment devices.
