Industry: Wound closure technologies
EMRGE is a medical device company developing simple, cost-effective solutions for wound care, wound closure and scar treatment.
The company’s three-part platform consists of force-modulating tissue bridges, variable resistance backings and bidirectional linear fixators. Together, these technologies offer a few key needs in wound care: approaches that don’t require anesthesia, don’t need active removal, minimize risk of infection and reduce scarring.
The global wound closure market was estimated at $15.6 billion in 2014 and is expected to reach $18.3 billion by 2019.
