3X faster than rolled gauze offers full coverage and higher absorbency for improved bleeding control. Patented port for stabilizing an external shunt or drain post-surgically.
For traumatic amputations and chronic wound care. Patented port to accommodate negative pressure drainage systems. For efficient nursing care and/or improved self-care.
Tested at the Mayo Clinic Simulation Center, 100% of the 14 surgical nurses and neurosurgeons placed the Hero bandage faster than rolled gauze.
Minutes saved by offering faster hemorrhage control can improve chances for better outcomes by allowing for earlier vital sign monitoring and life-saving interventions.
We demonstrated potential cost-saving to a hospital system by saving minutes for each neurosurgical procedure that requires a dressing in the OR.
And for ER and post-surgical care, 35% of wound care cost is related to nursing time.
We are replacing the way heads have been bandaged since Ancient Egyptian times. The outdated methods of hemorrhage control and wrapping a head are inefficient and simply take too long, therefore delaying other patient needs.
