To prepare the future, UrgoTech, the group’s internal start-up has the mission to explore and offer patients the benefits of connected health.

The Group’s engagement has always been to prevent and to heal. It turned innovation and production into strategic weapons to achieve that engagement, supported by its internal and partner based research.

Healing people

 

Urgo Medical is the advanced wound healing division of the URGO group.

Because serious wounds constitute a significant source of suffering all over the world, our mission, as “Healing Company”, is to relieve and cure patients by providing them with the most appropriate dressings and treatment protocols.

Urgo Medical is committed to working with health professionals on a daily basis to contribute to reducing healing time. Because every wound-free day makes a difference.

To make a difference for patients:

  • We invest almost 9% of our annual turnover to in-house R&D programmes and public/private partnerships in order to advance knowledge and treatments of wounds.
  • We demonstrate the clinical efficacy of our products with almost 55 studies conducted and 40 scientific publications in indexed periodicals.
  • We conduct a dynamic medical education policy with almost 35,000 health professionals trained every year.
  • We develop treatment protocols (leg ulcer, diabetic foot ulcer) because we know that each type of wound deserves a specific treatment.

We have succeeded in developing a product protocol responding to each type of wound with UrgoTul, UrgoStart, UrgoK2 and UrgoClean.

Today we are convinced that the overall improvement in the treatment path will contribute to better wound care. This is a major issue for patients, healthcare systems and health professionals. And we think that digital technology and e-health can play a key role in this transformation. This is why, in addition to our products, we are developing digital solutions.

Connected for a better you

In France, 10 million patients are suffering from pathologies such as stress, insomnia, urinal incontinence or TDA/H.

For these conditions, existing treatments need thorough support from healthcare professionals that are often overwhelmed, and can have important secondary effects.

By enabling patients to act upon their health, UrgoTech has the ambition to revolutionize the way these kinds of pathologies are taken care of.

UrgoTech, URGO Group’s startup, was founded in 2015 to imagine, develop and market innovative healthcare solutions, involving healthcare professionals. Psychiatrists, psychologists, gynecologists, midwives, sports doctors or cardiologists; UrgoTech works closely with healthcare professionals in order to identify and understand their patients’ needs. This is with these healthcare professionals that UrgoTech conceives efficient products and solutions that will improve the quality of life of patients.
