Are you, like millions of others, having difficulty lowering your blood pressure with medications? As you probably know, when high blood pressure can’t be controlled, it increases your risk of serious health problems such as heart disease, stroke, and kidney failure.
If you’re struggling to lower your blood pressure, and are already on medications, you may be a candidate for the CALM-2 Clinical Study. The study is evaluating a device designed to lower blood pressure through a minimally-invasive procedure.

What is the MobiusHD® device?
The MobiusHD is an implant designed to lower blood pressure through a minimally-invasive procedure. A single, small incision is made in the upper thigh. A small flexible catheter is inserted, and then advanced to the carotid artery in the neck. The catheter is used to deliver a small implant that is similar to a stent (the MobiusHD® device) in the carotid artery, and the catheter is removed. Once placed, the MobiusHD implant is designed to increase signals from our body’s baroreceptors, specialized nerves that trigger the body’s natural process to reduce blood pressure.
What is the CALM-2 Clinical Study?
Right now, doctors at select medical centres in the US and Europe are conducting a new research study to evaluate the MobiusHD implant and its ability to lower blood pressure (the CALM-2 Clinical Study). If you’ve been unable to lower your blood pressure and are already on medications, the CALM-2 Study may be right for you.
