Company Summary

Applaud Medical, Inc. was established to develop and commercialize an innovative new treatment for kidney stones, a condition diagnosed in more than 2 million individuals every year in the U.S. alone. Treating large stones currently requires anesthesia in an operating room . The current least invasive surgical intervention only renders 50% of patients stone-free. Applaud’s innovative kidney stone treatment will – for the first time – allow urologists to effectively treat 5-15 millimeter stones with a simple outpatient procedure.
