Profession: Engineer/Designer

Inspired by: Alan is the CEO of MedX First and has been in the medical advanced healing/ med device field since 1988. His inventions have evolved from skin closure, burn dressings and dis-solvable adhesive dressings for large wound cavities for ulcers & friable skin to being focused on saving lives at point of injury in trauma, battlefield, acts of violence, vehicle accidents, etc.

His goal has been to extend the golden hour (the short time between bleeding out and expiring) - to expanding this window of time to up to 72 hours.

These simple to use, intuitive medical devices are compact, lightweight - 1 oz & 3 oz and deploy in under 4 minutes.

We love exploring materials, solving quality, manufacturing and technical issues, while driving costs out of production, to achieve minimal waste, maximum product selection and application. Our designs go through 100's of rounds of internal refinement, after-all, patients’ lives are on the line. We Never, Ever compromise patient health or safety in the pursuit of profits. We are driven, and have a strong desire to save lives. #Choose2SaveLives.
