Leading innovation in airway clearance
Electromed, Inc., is dedicated to designing, manufacturing and marketing innovative airway clearance technologies that help people around the world breathe better, stay healthier, and lead active and fulfilling lives.
We were the first to develop a truly portable system for high frequency chest wall oscillation (HFCWO), making it possible for patients and their families to travel and take HFCWO therapy along. Electromed also pioneered the first programmable and first multi-positional HFCWO generator.
Known as the “Innovation Leader in Airway Clearance,” Electromed holds 23 U.S. patents, 12 foreign patents, and has more than 25 U.S. and foreign patent applications pending. These innovations mean our SmartVest® Airway Clearance System is uniquely designed for ergonomic comfort and lifestyle convenience to promote consistent therapy adherence, so patients are more likely to gain maximum therapeutic benefit.
Electromed focuses intently on serving patients with impaired airway clearance. More than 30 percent of our full-time employees — including all of the Patient Services team and half of our sales representatives (known as “clinical area managers”) — are licensed respiratory therapists. Our network of more than 300 health care professionals, 85 percent of them licensed respiratory therapists, educate and train patients and clinicians on using the SmartVest system.
Electromed understands how chronically compromised airway clearance affects people’s health and quality of life, while adding substantially to the systemic cost of health care. We embrace the absolute therapeutic imperative of clearing excess respiratory mucus from patients’ lungs. We listen intently to customers — patients, caregivers, health care professionals, payers — to gain insights and inspiration for future product and service innovations.
On behalf of patients, caregivers, clinicians and hospitals, Electromed advocates for public awareness of impaired airway clearance and HFCWO, and for insurance acceptance of HFCWO. We’re valued by customers for an unrivalled commitment to helping them manage insurance authorization and reimbursement.
