NelDerm® manufactures unique high-quality medical devices (proudly in Brunswick, OH) for the prevention and treatment of prevalent wounds.
Pressure Injuries are very common and costly for care providers. Pre-existing devices used for treating heels are often expensive, uncomfortable, difficult to use, and lead to device related injuries. Each year in the US, there are over 2.5 million incidents of pressure injuries (14% of which occur on heels) costing our healthcare system over $10 billion.
NelDerm® aims to become the standard of care for pressure injury treatment/prevention with our P.O.D.™ (Pressure Offloading Device) technology. This primarily includes selling B2B direct to in-house accounts including hospitals, strategic distributors, and cross-selling partners.
The NelDerm Heel P.O.D.™ is a multi-layered memory foam device (patent-pending) that comfortably elevates a patient’s heel and allows for visual assurance of effective offloading. This elimination of pressure helps to mitigate treatment costs, prevent lawsuits, and improve quality scores (and therefor reimbursement rates). The main value proposition for the Heel P.O.D.™, as confirmed by trial surveys of RNs, is that it improves compliance due to its superior comfort for the patient and its ease of use for the clinician.
The development of NelDerm’s innovative solutions is driven by understanding the pain points of end users and addressing their unmet needs in unique ways.
