Imperative Restructures Its Stroke Care Businesses

Imperative Care is now the parent company of four businesses.

Imperative Care

Imperative Care, a medical technology company specializing in care for people affected by stroke and other ischemic diseases, today announced a new organizational structure.

Imperative Care was co-founded in 2016 by Fred Khosravi, serial entrepreneur and managing partner at medical incubator Incept, LLC, and Dr. Nick Hopkins, one of the pioneers of neuroendovascular surgery.

Imperative Care is now the parent company of four businesses that share a common purpose to bring more care to more people affected by stroke and other ischemic diseases. These include:

  • Imperative Care Stroke, a business unit focused on bringing life-saving interventional treatments to patients with ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke for the best chance of a full recovery.
  • Imperative Care Vascular (formerly TRUVIC Medical, which was acquired by Imperative Care in 2021), a business unit advancing innovative treatments for people suffering from devastating vascular diseases, including pulmonary embolism.
  • Kandu Health, a digital health company aiming to change the course of stroke recovery and post-acute care through remote support.
  • Telos Health, a business unit using robotics and automation to optimize vascular intervention with the goal of making life-saving stroke and vascular thrombectomies accessible to more people.

Imperative Care’s Vascular business currently has two FDA-cleared products, the Symphony Thrombectomy System for venous applications and the Prodigy Thrombectomy System for peripheral arterial applications, which are designed to remove a wide range of clots in the peripheral arteries and veins. Prodigy is commercially available at select hospitals in the U.S. and Symphony’s targeted launch will be initiated in the coming months.

Kandu Health, which announced its formation as an independent company earlier this year, is a majority owned business of Imperative Care. Through its digital health platform, Kandu Health offers remote clinical support to stroke survivors in the first 90 days following a stroke. This support is tailored to each participant based on their individual needs and provided through licensed healthcare providers.
