The first product to market will be the Wave Therapeutic Cushion. This device uniquely combines various safe, effective, and medically recognized treatments in a unique fashion and is designed to significantly reduce the risks of pressure injury, adverse clotting, leg pain, and cramping. At the core of each Wave device is a unique and innovative microprocessor-controlled peristaltic pump designed to safely and effectively eliminate pressure “hot spots”, reperfuse tissues, and improve return blood flow to the heart and lungs. A future enhancement will include malfunction sensors and alarms to insure safe usage with at-risk populations, and a wireless staff alert system that can notify care providers of possible falls, medical emergencies, and suspected elopements. Future products will include a mattress topper that utilizes our same proprietary technologies; consumer products for long-haul drivers, frequent fliers, and office workers; and a military product for flight and transport crews.
