We are an innovative startup, recognised as such on regional and national level, founded by operators and managers with decades of experience in dialysis, intensive care, cardiology, and medical devices in general.
We have strongly and physically set up in the incubator of the Biomedical District of Mirandola.
This district has the knowledge, technologies, enterprises and production capacities that allow us to quickly and efficiently develop therapies and products giving new stimulus and creating new jobs.
We can tap the wealth of the wide network of skills and knowledge branching out around the Po Valley: from the universities to the research institutions and to the hospitals, from Emilia Romagna to all of Italy and Europe.
All the known medical device innovations and the therapies based on them spring from ideas and activities carried out in collaboration between industries, clinicians, academicians and researchers across the world, but first and foremost, from Italy and Europe.
The Aferetica partners have always believed that this is the only road that leads to real and concrete innovation and have with their activities contributed to the growth of collaborative research, and want to make it the building block of the company.
For these reasons, Aferetica has chosen to stay within the incubator side by side with the Technopole established with the mission of being the aggregation point of interdisciplinary skills of the territory.
