Protect the high-acuity patient

Our Guardian System helps prevent sacral-region vascular compromise and associated local and systemic health complications in high-acuity patients.

We're helping clinicians streamline care to better protect and manage their most complex patients.

  • Unique, patented technology

  • Provides anatomy-aware pressure gradient therapy

  • Adaptive to patient weight & movement

One-of-a-kind Vasotactic technology

Intelligently designed to prevent sacral-region vascular compromise

Pressure injury therapy for the ventilated patient

Applies easily to existing hospital beds for an effective alternative to air-fluidized bed therapy.

The everywhere solution

From the OR to rehab: the Guardian helps protect and manage high-acuity patients throughout the entire recovery process.

Real-world effectiveness

81%

reduction in sacral-region pressure injury incidence with high-risk, acute care inpatients

60%

less time to fully heal Stage 2 sacral-region pressure injuries in a group of long term care facilities

57%

length of stay reduction for mobility-impaired, acute care inpatients with ischemic stroke and acute kidney injury

Evidence-based therapy

Ischemia and reperfusion (I/R) injury has been shown to cause local and systemic health complications. 

In the sacral region, this means pressure injury formation, pain, and the release of pro-inflammatory mediators which can impact recovery.
