We are creating medical devices to help patients recover with dignity at home after major surgeries like mastectomies. Postop drains are a key part of surgical recovery, especially at home, and yet they've seen less improvement than an elbow brace in nearly 50 years! This is why we listened to surgeons, patients, caregivers, hospitalists and designed a solution that delivers sustained vacuum in a patient friendly manner. We believe there is more to postoperative recovery than just healing the tissue.


"In 2004, I remember being in the middle of a very busy season of graduations and celebrations in my household and wanting to be part of the festivities however I found myself sidelined by the maintenance of these difficult drains. I couldn't be happier to be part of what I believe will revolutionize the way women recover from breast cancer surgery."
