While most device innovation is incremental, breakthroughs can change the face of healthcare. VMT strives to envision transformative approaches to daily challenges. The aim is to improve clinical outcomes and patient experience while actually reducing costs.
As an example, lacerations occur every day. Use of needle and thread has been the standard of care for centuries. This approach is painful for the patient, time-consuming for the doctor, and expensive for the medical system. By envisioning a better way to address large lacerations and providing improved cosmetic results over needle and thread, VMT worked to try to make the daily care of individuals just a little bit better.
VMT has efforts underway in regional anesthesia, critical care, and other high touch fields that can be improved with modern technology.
