What I need help with

My background as an entrepreneur

My current challenges

I need help researching decision makers for long term care and nursing home contacts as well as how to develop outreach and sales strategies to get into the industry.

Actions I’ve taken so far

I've had 250 pairs manufactured and are available for immediate sale. My device is patent pending & using the Trademark (authorized by the patent and trademark office) "Bedsores Be Gone." Website: https://bedsoresbegone.com

I've created a few, intermittent FB and tv ads, an Instagram page and a FB page.

My future goals

Sales to nursing homes, hospitals, rehab centers, home care agencies, and the general public.

My motivations to work with a mentor

Gaining insight and techniques from experts in various fields.


About my venture

Bedsores Be Gone Started 2020

I'm a licensed practical nurse with 20+ years of experience and have invented a patent pending, medical assistive device that makes it easier for 1 caregiver to turn and reposition a bed bound patient. Bedsores are a pervasive $11B per year problem in the USA, and are often preventable with a simple change of body position.  My device will allow short staffed facilities to reduce these costs and problems.

Countries of operation: United States of America
