About Vivani Medical

Vivani Medical (Nasdaq: VANI) leverages proprietary technologies to develop and commercialize drug and device implants that treat patients with chronic diseases with high unmet medical needs. The Drug Implant division is developing a new portfolio of miniature drug implants which utilize its proprietary NanoPortal drug implant technology. These drug implants, designed to deliver minimally fluctuating drug profiles, will address drug non-adherence which is a leading reason for sub-optimal clinical benefit associated with oral and injectable products that treat chronic diseases. The company’s lead product, NPM-119, is a GLP-1 receptor agonist under development to treat patients with Type 2 diabetes. The company was formerly known as Second Sight Medical Products and rebranded to Vivani Medical in August 2022 after its merger with Nano Precision Medical. Vivani Medical was founded in 1998 and is based in Sylmar, California. In November 2014, Vivani Medical went public with a valuation of $311M.

NovaLign Orthopaedics, formerly known as OsteoLign, is developing a minimally invasive solution for long bone fractures.


Beta-Stim - Minimally invasive implantable neuro-stimulator to treat obesity and type II diabetic patients.


EyeTechCare is developing non-invasive therapeutic medical devices for the ophthalmology market based on High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU), a technology that allows ambulatory and rapid treatment to be performed, thereby limiting the cost and the risk to the patient. The company's first device, EyeOP1 (R), for the treatment of glaucoma, has been undergoing clinical trials in France and Europe.


Satiety, Inc. is a medical device company focused on the development of less invasive devices for the treatment of obesity. Obesity is a global health problem, affecting 70 million people in the U.S. and 300 million worldwide, and growth of which is causing increases in obesity-related diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease. Obesity surgery has been shown to be the only long-term effective means of weight loss for morbidly obese patients. Satiety's first product, the TOGA System, enables physicians to perform a procedure similar to traditional restrictive obesity surgeries, but without surgical incisions. In this procedure, the TOGA System devices are inserted transorally (through the mouth) and are used to reduce the capacity of the stomach to give patients a feeling of fullness after a small meal. The procedure is intended to be safer and easier for patients to tolerate than conventional obesity surgery. Safety and effectiveness of the TOGA System are currently being evaluated in a multi-center U.S. Study and the system is not available for sale in the United States.


Urovalve, Inc. has developed and patented technology to control fluid flow through small diameter flexible tubing. The core technology for the Surinate bladder management system is comprised of a magnetically controlled valve that can be activated remotely by a Surinate wearer who uses a hand held magnet to self-regulate flow. Currently available devices require continuous bladder drainage or insertion of a tube into the urethra several times each day. The Surinate bladder management system aims to provide a solution to the problems of life style, urinary tract infections, and substantial healthcare worker expenses associated with existing catheters.


IntraTherm is focused on continuous improvement of the medical device industry through the introduction of processes and products that aid surgeons and patients in their fight against cancer.
