Finetech Medical is part of  Bioinduction, a UK based group manufacturing unique implantable neuromodulation devices. Originally founded in 1982, it remains the only UK based company in the field of  designing and manufacturing  long-term implantable nerve and muscle stimulators to restore function after neurological injury,e.g. spinal cord injury, stroke, multiple sclerosis.

History

In 1972, Professor Giles Brindley proposed a new approach to artificially control the human bladder using electrical stimulation. The need to find a commercial manufacturer for the implanted bladder stimulator was entrusted to Finetech Ltd based in Welwyn Garden City, UK. In 1982, after Finetech’s careful engineering for production, the company delivered the first commercial Finetech-Brindley bladder stimulator. In 1993 a new company, Finetech Medical Ltd, was established to focus solely on manufacturing implantable devices within dedicated clean room and production facilities.

From 2000, the company increased design and development activity, creating new and novel implanted devices for specialist applications and trials. One of these devices, the STIMuSTEP, was commercialised and awarded the CE mark in 2004.

Today, Finetech Medical remains the only UK based company designing and manufacturing long-term implantable nerve and muscle stimulators that restore function after neurological injury. To date, there are nearly 4,000 people who are already benefiting from our devices worldwide.
