INNOVATIVE TRAUMA CARE INC.
Innovative Trauma Care, Inc. (“iTraumaCare™”, “Innovative Trauma Care™” or the “Company”) is an early stage “first revenue” medical device company initially focused on developing and marketing point of injury solutions to address the common causes of preventable death in traumatic injury scenarios.
Founded and incorporated in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, in 2010, and with U.S. headquarters in San Antonio, Texas, Innovative Trauma Care’s initial product is the iTClamp™ Hemorrhage Control System, which addresses the number one cause of preventable death in trauma scenarios – uncontrolled bleeding.
The company is beginning to transform the field of emergency casualty care by developing, manufacturing and commercializing point-of-injury solutions to treat common causes of preventable death. The company’s initial goal is to capture a substantial share of the global market in this under-exploited area of pre-hospital trauma care.
NEUROLOGIC MEDICAL SOLUTIONS INC.
Neurosurgery is a tough field. Barriers to innovation like IP protection, design, testing as well as the necessary regulatory requirements make it a challenge to effect positive change. Popular opinion, driven by journal articles and opinion leaders, governs procurement and clinical adoption. Outdated, antiquated tools dominate operating rooms and bedside tables around the globe.
Enter NeuroLogic. We're creating a pipeline from ideas to innovations in surgery, lowering the development lag time. Our goal is to constantly improve surgeries by building better technologies to help healthcare professionals do their jobs.
We believe that as the healthcare industry faces growing challenges and constraints, the status quo is no longer enough. The only way forward is to stay flexible by responding to the continually changing needs of surgeons, which is what NeuroLogic is all about.
