vTail was born in the spring of 2020 and developed by a founding team with decades of experience in the medical products industry. The app was initially launched in the US into the Wound Care market, and has expanded into the Dental market, with Orthopedics launched in March 2033.
We've been successful at raising capital from an impressive group of shareholders who share our vision for revitalizing the interface between clinicians and industry. This is allowing us to invest in the simultaneous growth of our user base (via our US-based team) and in product development (via our UK-based team).
Feel free to get in touch to discuss joining the team, commercial collaborations or investing.
