Healiva® is a patient-centric Biotech company, delivers precision medicine to improve people’s quality of life. We are the first Biotech offering multiple end-to-end, intuitive wound care solutions that could be personalized whilst remaining affordable. Wound healing is the intricate process and the biological complexity of this sequence of events means that despite the majority of superficial wounds heal without issue, this process can go awry resulting in a non-healing, chronic wound. These can take months, even years to heal with current treatment approaches. Non-healing, chronic wounds represent a significant burden to both patients’ quality of life and to healthcare systems. About 60% of chronic wounds remain unhealed. In the EU, between 1.5 and 2m people are living with chronic wounds, with Switzerland alone being home to over 300,000. Starkly, this consequence is also on the rise, with limb amputation increasing by nearly 20% between 2014-2017 when compared to 2010-2013. Healiva®’s pipeline products are poised to reduce the cost to heal a wound by addressing these factors directly, providing solutions that are not only highly effective, but also easy-to-use, cost-effective, and accessible.
Our customer base is multifaceted, encompassing hospitals, medical practitioners, insurance providers, and the patients themselves. Healiva’s pipeline products will target key pain-points for our customers and specialist medical expertise to allow patients to re-establish their normal work/life routines.
