The TurnCare Story

About TurnCare

A fresh approach to a long-standing healthcare concern

TurnCare was founded in 2011 by Dr. Rafael Squitieri, Chief of Cardiothoracic Surgery at St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport, CT, along with Kim Orumchian, serial entrepreneur and technology expert. Dr. Squitieri was frustrated by the number of patients developing complications due to sacral-region ischemia / reperfusion injury, despite clinicians’ best manual efforts to maintain adequate perfusion and use of the latest therapeutic equipment. 

Dr. Squitieri focused on the circulatory system’s critical role in health to create a technology that would prevent sacral-region vascular compromise to enhance perfusion to sacral-region tissues and mitigate the harmful effects of I/R injury.



After four years of painstaking research and hundreds of prototypes, Dr. Squitieri and his interdisciplinary team developed the TurnCare Guardian System.
