Worldwide Innovative Healthcare

WiCare develops innovative medical devices that are clinically effective and affordable worldwide. We find cutting-edge solutions to complex problems through smart design. This approach yields results that improve healthcare and clinical outcomes in all markets, from world-class hospitals in the United States to rural clinics in the developing world.

~~~ Answering the worldwide call for compassionate care. ~~~

Our first device in the WiCare product pipeline is the Wound-Pump, a simplified negative pressure wound therapy (sNPWT) device.
The treatment of open wounds drains significant resources in all healthcare systems, as the worldwide prevalence (a.k.a., daily number) of open wounds is estimated to be approximately 200M. The amount of money spent on wound care, the loss of productivity for afflicted individuals and the families that care for them and their diminished quality of life come at a great cost.
NPWT has been clinically demonstrated to speed the healing time of open wounds, while reducing the risk of infection and the amount of scarring. In particular, NPWT has been proven to heal chronic wounds that would not otherwise heal on their own; chronic wounds consist substantially of diabetic, pressure and venous leg ulcers. However, despite these benefits, NPWT devices are largely not accessible, due to high costs, required training, limited portability and high electrical power requirements.
For the first time, the Wound-Pump provides a means to offer NPWT to the global patient population. This patent-pending technology was developed, based on the global customer needs in all targeted markets and the functional parameters necessary for successful therapy. The Wound-Pump system was applied in the field during the Earthquake Relief Effort in Haiti and during a phase I study in Rwanda. It will provide a NPWT option that is affordable, easy-to-use, extremely portable and purely mechanical (a.k.a., it does not require electricity or battery power).
