WE ARE VOLTMED

SURGERY AT THE NANOSCALE

ABOUT

VoltMed, Inc. is an early-stage medical device company in Blacksburg, Virginia devoted to helping patients with cancer through the commercialization of our INSPIRE platform (Integrated Nanosecond Pulse Irreversible Electroporation). During an INSPIRE procedure, a minimally invasive probe is inserted into the tumor and a series of low-energy, yet high-voltage electric pulses are applied to kill cells via the creation of long-lasting membrane nanopores. The platform provides unique benefits in destroying aberrant tissue.

  • INSPIRE™ is based on ten years of evidence-based research.
  • Featured in over fifteen publications in high-impact scientific and medical journals.
  • Pulses selectively destroy target cells without damaging nerves and blood vessels.
  • Leaves a sharp, predictable boundary between treated and untreated tissue that can be verified under MRI.
  • Reversible region surrounding the treatment zone that enables improved drug delivery.

BENEFITS

TARGETED

Other treatments (surgery, chemo, radiation, etc.) have limited efficacy and a host of negative side-effects.

PRECISE

INSPIRE™ can be applied to treat unresectable tissue that is surrounded by critical structures

FAST

Following placement of the probes, the entire therapy lasts less than five minutes.
