iTClamp Hemorrhage Control System Goes Global
Just two years after Edmonton-based Innovative Trauma Care were awarded start-up cash for a device to stop hemorrhage bleeding, two innovators Dr's Ian Atkinson and Dennis Filips' creation - TClamp™ - is being used around the world, including being unveiled earlier this week in Australia.
After 20 years working as a military trauma surgeon, Dr. Filips, an Edmonton native, said he was inspired to create something that shortened the gap in time between injury and treatment.
iTraumaCare™ (Innovative Trauma Care, Inc.) is an early stage medical device company focused on developing and marketing solutions to address the common causes of preventable death in traumatic injury scenarios. Founded and incorporated in Edmonton, Canada in 2010, with US headquarters in San Antonio, Texas, iTraumaCare's premier product is the iTClamp™ Hemorrhage Control System, which addresses the number one cause of preventable death in trauma scenarios – massive hemorrhage.
