Legend Capital leads ForQaly Medical's Series B financing

HONG KONG, Oct 8, 2021 - (ACN Newswire) - ForQaly Medical (hereinafter referred to as "ForQaly"), located in Shanghai Zhangjiang International Medical Zone, is a leading high-tech company focused on developing micro-traumatic circulatory assistant devices. Recently, it completed its Series B fundraising led by Legend Capital, followed by CD Capital, SAIF Partners, Chengwei Chuangban and Co-win Ventures. Existing investors Lilly Asia Ventures and Kaitai Capital also participated in the funding round.

This round of financing will be applied to promote the clinical research of ForQaly's existing products, so that the transvalvular ventricular assist devices (VAD) could be affordable for patients with urgent needs as early as possible. On the other hand, the capital will go for the expansion of ForQaly's research team to accelerate the parallel development of products, so that potential comprehensive solutions could be provided for high-risk PCI intraoperative protection and cardiogenic shock treatment.

Mr. Tang Zhirong, the founder of ForQaly, said: "For the past years, the clinical applications of the transvalvular VAD was uncommon in China.
