About Aquamer Medical Corp.
Aquamer Medical Corp., a clinical development stage company, focuses on the development and commercialization of injectable biocompatible products, which consist of a water-based polymer technology utilized as a tissue-bulking agent in the fields of dermatology (AquaDerm), urology/gynecology (AquaGen), and gastroenterology (AquaFlux).
Products in Development
The company is developing the following products designed for use in orthopedic surgery, dermatology, urology, and gastroenterology.
The company intends to exploit its acquisition of the patent rights to the Hydropatella Implant.
When, due to disease or injury, the surfaces of a knee joint become sufficiently disabling and painful (arthritic), these surfaces are commonly replaced using a surgical operation, either in whole or in part by prosthetic implants. The invention relates to an improved patella with improved biocompatible properties, such as high surface lubricity, reduced component-to-component wear, and drug delivery capabilities.
The invention is based on the discovery that structural elements for joint replacement (a patella), can be made of a biocompatible material that absorbs an aqueous solution to form a hydrogel, referred to as hydropatella implant, which provides a durable, wear resistant patella that can be implanted in a surgical procedure to replace the damaged natural patella of a subject or as part of a component system for a total knee replacement.
AquaDerm is targeted at the long-term corrective effects of skin treatment. AquaDerm addresses conditions of tissue atrophy due to aging, facial wrinkles, and depressed scars, as well as soft tissue defects resulting from surgery and inflammatory skin diseases. The companys product would be injected into the affected areas and filled to the appropriate point, making the defect flush with the surrounding tissue, or in the case of lip augmentation plumped to the desired size.
AquaGen has been developed for use as a bulking agent in the minimally invasive treatment of stress urinary incontinence (SUI), the most common form of urinary incontinence. AquaGen is injected into the urethra/bladder junction (urinary sphincter muscle), reinforcing the muscle tissues around the bladder neck, the bulking of the closure mechanism that prevents accidental urine leakage. SUI relates to the accidental or unintentional leakage of urine.
AquaFlux has been designed for use as a bulking agent in the minimally invasive treatment of chronic heartburn or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). AquaFlux is utilized as a bulking agent to strengthen and build the sphincter muscle at the base of the esophagus through a procedure, reinforcing and augmenting the closure mechanism that prevents reflux or gastric heartburn. GERD is a condition whereby gastric contents from the stomach rise into the esophagus, known as reflux.
The company was founded in 2000. It was formerly known as Aquamer Inc. and changed its name to Aquamer Medical Corp. in 2007.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
