Company Summary

ACC is addresssing the Critical Care problem of managing Inter-Cranial Pressure (ICP). Current systems require the patient to be immobile and constant skilled staff attention. Our working prototyes demonstrate the ability to allow the patient to move, and minimize attention from nursing staff. This has been well received by the neurosurgeons and critical care nurses and administrators, especially in this era of constrained hospital budgets.
