Why Choose VTI?
VTI produces products for the highly demanding medical industry. The inflatable boot (pictured here) enables environmentally controlled therapy of open wounds and other conditions to accelerate the healing process. Its design posed a challenge as it required a complex combination of sequenced operations and advanced tooling. VTI engineers came through and designed a manufacturing method and tooling specifically for this customer. The application was a breakthrough in the treatment of slow to heal extremities and the customer and its end users are happy with the outcome.
VTI also manufactures vacuum lock cushions used to stabilize patients in preparation for medical procedures such as MRI’s and Cat Scans. Cushions form to the patient’s body contour, maintaining a patient’s position over repeated visits for improved tracking of the patient’s progress. The product is filled with styrofoam beads and then sealed shut. A valve allows for vacuum to be pulled on the product before it is fnally sealed, tested, and packed for shipment.
