Our Core Values
At Guard Medical, we create products that can help deliver a better quality of life for surgical patients. NPseal is a simple, easy-to-use device that delivers Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) and may promote wound healing while lowering the barriers of high complexity and cost. Numerous peer reviewed studies have demonstrated the utility of NPWT in reducing the risk of surgical site complications. *
Elevate Patient Experience
We believe that all patients deserve smarter healing. By offering products that are easy-to-use and cost-effective, patients can receive well-known therapies that may promote healing.
At Guard Medical, we know great solutions don’t need to be complicated. We obsess over creating simple and effective NPWT products that are easy for clinicians and patients to use.
At Guard Medical, we understand that many patients who could benefit from negative pressure wound therapy aren’t offered it due to cost. We’re looking to dramatically change the cost of this therapy to allow more patients to benefit from smarter healing.
Elevate Patient Experience
At Guard Medical, we create products that can help deliver a better quality of life for surgical patients. We do this by focusing on solutions that may promote wound healing for happy patients and doctors.
