Based in Cardiff, WIMAT is one of the UK’s leading training centres for laparoscopic surgery. Alesi Surgical works with leading surgeons and surgical trainers to identify common issues encountered in surgery, then designs products to resolve these issues – resulting in safer, faster, more cost-effective procedures and a smoother operative flow.
Alesi Surgical initially worked with funding from the University’s own seed fund. A prototype developed in 2009 yielded promising results, and development continued following a further equity investment. After much hard work the product was awarded a CE mark and approved for launch in January 2014.
