Inspired by Patients & Caregivers

Why We Created VOCSN

Integrated solutions for respiratory care

Our team was motivated by the belief that people are more than their medical conditions and that technology should evolve to make life easier. People should not have to use five different medical devices to treat any medical condition.

And yet, the reality has been very different. Hospital workers must learn multiple devices and spend valuable time switching circuits to deliver multiple therapies.  Patients' families are overwhelmed as their homes turn into mini hospital rooms to support all of the different devices.

We designed VOCSN to make life easier for patients and their caregivers. The result is that patients become more mobile and caregivers have more time to care for their patients.
