Research and development
R&D at Stendo Laboratoire
Stendo Laboratoire’s Research and Development Department is supervised by the Managing Director, Renan Le Blé, who is an engineer and who coordinates an external network of consultants and engineers based at multiple sites (Paris, Honfleur, Caen, Nice, Lyon, Lausanne) and specialising in multiple disciplines: cutting-edge electronics, industrial development, digital technology, engineering, textiles, design, logistics, marketing, and finally training, regulatory affairs and medical specialties.
In terms of the scientific validation of the N.O.logy® technique, Stendo Laboratoire is relying on a scientific committee made up of six highly qualified and specialised individuals. In terms of clinical, and therefore practical, expertise in a practice setting, the company has set up a network of medical and paramedical treatment centres that communicate via the network to define protocols suited to the various targets.
Thanks to this collective know-how, Stendo Laboratoire has been able to develop a novel device, a complete range of services across various markets, and product/business expertise that places the company in a position to meet strong demand in France and internationally.

From American research to French innovation
At the beginning of the new millennium, a few eminent French doctors, essentially ER doctors and cardiologists, became passionate about the discoveries that had won the 1998 Nobel Prize for medicine, a passion that developed as a result of being regularly confronted with severe failure of the cardiovascular systems of certain patients. One of these doctors, Dr S Nour, a paediatric cardiac surgeon, invented a first concept involving endothelial stimulation and reawakening of natural nitric oxide production.
An idea then developed, that this NO-producing endothelial stimulation could be generated “mechanically” and on demand, to obtain very interesting physiological effects for the purposes of medicine, physical rehabilitation, prevention and well-being in modern man.
Research and international patents
Cardio Innovative System (CIS) is the sole holder of an exclusive worldwide license for the commercial use of 10 patents that have already been filed. The company now benefits from the support of two new partners, who are both hospital doctors and researchers, Prof. O. Bailliart and Prof. D. Payen de la Garanderie. At the end of 2011, CIS provided Stendo Laboratoire with the exclusive and worldwide distribution license for non-invasive applications of the Stendo® device and its Pulsewave® suit.
