Tokai Medical Products (TMP) is a research and development oriented medical equipment manufacturer. TMP has succeeded in the domestic manufacturing of an IABP (Intra Aortic Balloon Pumping) balloon catheter, a first aid device for cardiac infarction. TMP continues to challenge its competitions in the high-tech medical field.

■Core Competence

Lead by the fact that the second daughter of the president was born with a serious congenital heart disease, Tokai Medical Products was established. In cooperation with medical institutions, for the first time in Japan, TMP has developed a high-performance IABP balloon catheter that has balloon strength for unique physical characteristics only found in Japanese. These products are only developed by Japanese technologies.
As a result, TMP received the biomaterial congress award in Toronto, Canada for its safe and highly functional IABP balloon catheter. Our high level of technology, fast development, strict “on-site” principle, and pinpoint response (merit of a domestic manufacturer) has led to a number of development offers by doctors in medical institutions. TMP has directly applied such valuable opinions to our products. Our strength is our customer’s trust obtained through thorough development and manufacturing processes.
