Welcome to Z-Medica, home of the innovative blood clotting technology behind QuikClot® family of products for hemostasis. Z-Medica was founded in 2002 by Francis X. Hursey, a veteran of the Apollo Project Breathing Air Team.
Despite all the medical miracles and advancements over the years, there had never been a simple way to control high volume bleeding fast. For the first time in history, we’ve put the ability to quickly stop severe, life threatening bleeding into the hands of anyone who can tear open a package and follow a few simple directions. Because of the intuitive format and ability to rapidly control bleeding, our products were quickly adopted by the US Military, where we made an immediate impact saving many lives on the battlefield. With our established military history, QuikClot® products have now become an essential part of saving lives throughout the healthcare market and emergency response teams. We continue to innovate and deliver life saving products for all situations where blood loss is an issue – on the battlefield, for the first responder, for the surgeon in the ER, anywhere blood loss is an issue. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our company and our lifesaving products.
