Our Story

Woundtech provides technology-enabled wound management services. Our mission is to ensure that anyone, anywhere can get access to world-class wound care.

“Treating wounds in a hospital or clinic is expensive and difficult for the patient. We have created a better, more efficient way to treat wounds by bringing the clinic to patients where they live. Our telehealth platform makes this possible, as it brings together all stakeholders: health care providers, patients and the insurance companies. The platform also allows us to capture valuable data about wounds and their treatment, which we then carefully analyze to provide better, more personalize approaches.”
