Globally, about 19% of women choose permanent contraception as their method of family planning. The main advantage of permanent contraception is that it is safe & effective and helps prevent user errors which may lead to pregnancy. The most common form of permanent contraception is tubal ligation, a surgical procedure in which the fallopian tubes are disrupted.
AltaScience has developed AltaSeal®, a non-surgical permanent contraception device that can be inserted via hysterscope in a gynaecologist’s office without the need general anaesthetic. It is easy to use and there is clinical data to support its effectiveness.
The company was founded by James Coleman MD and Christopher Cummins MA who have extensive experience in the medical device industry.
