Suturegard Medical

Suturegard, selected to be a part of MedTech Innovator 2022, provides a solution to time-consuming wound closure processes, such as skin flaps, skin grafts and second intent healing, by offering faster and simpler wound repairs for up to 3cm wide wounds. With Suturegard's linear closure approach, most cases avoid skin flaps and grafts, allowing for greater patient retention in the office setting.


MedTech Innovator is rightly touted as the world's largest and best accelerator for medical technology companies. We had launched our HEMIGARD devices and had some sales traction prior to acceptance into the 2022 MTI cohort and wondered, "How much value could it really provide?" The answer was a lot! Collaborating with the MTI network of expert clinicians and industry leaders, led by the incomparable Paul Grand, directly helped us solve key operational problems, refine our value proposition, expand our KOL network and grow our product pipeline. I would highly recommend any medtech startup company to apply and particpate in MTI.
