MEDICUD, a company based in Lausanne, pioneers innovation in wound healing with a non-powered vacuum-assisted closure device. The focus is on developing and marketing a cost-effective mechanically powered pump, offering a sustainable alternative to the expensive and environmentally unfriendly electric portable pumps currently dominating the market. The solution prioritizes simplicity and efficiency, eliminating unnecessary features like touchscreens and beepers, while ensuring a constant negative pressure for optimal wound care. The compact design allows for portability, fitting in a pocket or attaching to the patient’s leg for convenience. The Founder & CEO is Antonio Nunzio D’angelo. MEDICUD was one of the selected Start-ups in 2020.
