The Inspiration behind Inspiration Medical Technology

Society is focused on improving healthcare outcomes while managing costs. Increasingly, the health care consumer is taking on more of the responsibility and risk. There is a large gap in the system: people are expected to play a greater part in their healthcare, but consumers lack the right information and products. The consumer is not prepared for consumer-centered health care. T

This is why we started Inspiration Medical Technology. We Believe Everyone Deserves:

How We Do It

We continually look for innovative medical technologies and products that address a significant medical problem and provide a solution that is superior to what is currently available. IMT’s business model is to license proven medical technologies and market them directly to consumers. Most of our products will have FDA approval for over-the-counter (OTC) marketing. The products are coupled with consumer marketing programs that are designed to maximize the lifetime value of the customer. The missing key to the broad adoption of professional-grade medical products is education. Consumers need to understand why a professional medical product is right for them. We achieve consumer awareness through direct marketing and partnerships with institutions that have a vested interest in getting quality products and education to their constituents, rather than mass retail. Additional value for Inspiration Medical is realized by ownership of our customer database and brand recognition of our products. Our team has deep expertise in marketing healthcare products and structuring relationships. We leverage our expertise by partnering with leading experts to ensure the greatest impact on improving people’s health.

AllaQuix™ is used by leading Surgeons, Hospitals, Police and Trauma units, Athletic Trainers, and Hemophilia Treatment Centers. chitosan AllaQuix™ is designed to work for all people who have trouble stopping bleeding! HOW DOES ALLAQUIX™ WORK? AllaQuix™ works independent of the clotting cascade – which means AllaQuix™ will work whether the body is able to clot blood on its own or not. chart OPPOSITES ATTRACT! The chitosan fibers in AllaQuix™ have a positive charge. Red blood cells have a negative charge. Once the AllaQuix™ pad is on the wound, the chitosan fibers in AllaQuix™ attract red blood cells. When the red blood cells bind to the AllaQuix™ pad, a seal over the wound is created to stop bleeding. WHAT DO PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY ABOUT ALLAQUIX™ “An excellent bleeding control product. I experienced a deep cut on a flexible part of the finger, and it stopped the bleeding rapidly and kept it from reopening as I accomplished several tasks that required hand and finger movement. For someone on blood thinners, it is an important product.” - Michael from Minnesota “My mom is on blood thinners and these will be life saving to her. We decided to get this as the powder really burns her skin.” - Claire from California “Great product, would recommend to anyone that has issues with nose bleeds. Helped tremendously.” - Nanci from California “Thank you for saving me a trip to the ER. I was cutting open a package and the knife slipped, deeply slicing the back of my thumb. Immediately knowing that this wound likely needed stitches, I prepared to gauze my thumb and head to the ER. However, next to the gauze was the AllaQuix patch you gave me and I figured I should try that first. Needless to say, the patch worked extremely well! Stopped the bleeding within minutes and after 24 hours my wound had closed enough to where I could just use bandaids. You guys really have a great product.” - Derek from Minnesota “I felt that it was only right to tell you a story. I had a bone marrow test done at the U of MI hospital in an attempt to see if they could find any answer to the Factor 9 problem that I had developed. They did the usual very small incision. Well here we are more than 6 weeks later and I start bleeding from the incision while having a chemo infusion. We had tried so many things that it was to the point that they were talking about doing a surgical closure of the opening. Well the doctor decided to try AllaQuix and several more injections as a last try. The doctor has not even seen it yet but when I removed the padding and your patch 4 days later, it was healed. All that we had to put on it was a band aid. With the new condition of being a hemophiliac I will now have to worry about having products such as yours available with me at all times in case I have a bleed.” - Ron from Michigan “We are using AllaQuix on wounds on patients on blood thinners. They work great! Much better than gel foam we used in the past.” - Dermatologist from Tennessee “I have recommended AllaQuix to many of my patients with von Willebrand disease, primarily for epistaxis management.” - Nurse from North Carolina “We used AllaQuix on someone with a superficial wound from a shave biopsy that was bleeding. It was effective in stopping the bleeding.” - Dermatologist from Florida “AllaQuix came in handy with turf abrasions. They worked well.” - University Athletic Trainer from Ohio “I cut my index finger badly trying to adjust a razor with the razor blade in it. Dumb mistake. The next step if the AllaQuix pad didn’t work was the doctor’s office. But it did work in stopping the bleeding.” - William from Indiana “I am part of a not-so-young hiking group. This is an ideal product for all the cuts and scrapes that are endemic for people like us.” - Michael from Minnesota [/fullwidth_text]
