ABOUT US

Speed Care Mineral GmbH is a high-tech company based in Neubrandenburg with almost 20 years of advance research in mineralogy and hemostasis.
The company uses its expertise of mineral processing and refinement primarily for the development, production and distribution of medical products in the field of hemostasis, but also offers various mineral based technologies for manufacturers in other industries, i. e. cosmetics, textiles and heavy industries.
The development and production of the products takes place 100% at locations in Germany.
We combine our expertise in minerals with modern knowledge of medicine and technology to engineer new solutions for the treatment of acute bleeding wounds.

MINERALS

With modern lab equipment (x-ray, particle analyzer) we are able to provide both raw-materials and related documentations and certificates to be compliant with increasing requirements of authorities and regulatory affairs.
Our CTO Dr. rer. nat. habil. J. Schomburg has an experience of more than 40 years in technical mineralogy. Comprehensive international cooperation and several R&D-projects cause a high innovation level.  More than 100 scientific papers underline the competence of this division.
Development and deliveries of selected value added mineral products for life science- and nanotechnology-based applications are major business areas:
  • Raw material evaluations and advanced technological research and customer-tailored product developments in life science applications
  • Development and characterization of mineral products with natural nano scaled properties
  • Research and Consulting focused on potential customer needs
  • Supply & Delivery of natural nanomineral products
  • Clean technologies for environmental protection

MEDICAL DEVICES

Bleeding to death is the oldest forms of death and even in a time of modern medicine, people die this way every day in emergency rooms, combat zones and on the streets. 40% of trauma-related deaths are because of hemorrhaging in the pre-hospital period.
3, 2, 1 minutes are decisive save a life once bleeding starts.
In such situation the most important task of a first responder at the scene of an accident is to detect and stop active bleeding. There are diffuse, unclear bleedings where other techniques are inappropriate. In these situations, the use of an emergency hemostatic dressing is often the only chance to stop the bleeding.
SpeedM® Emergency Hemostatic Compress has been developed exactly for this purpose.
It is our goal to provide an easy-to-use technology for hemostasis in emergency situations, in order to significantly reduce the number of bleeding victims in the future.

THE PRODUCT

SpeedM® Emergency Hemostatic Dressing
SpeedM® (patent pending) consists of perforated nonwoven material applied with ultrafine halloysites. Due to its morphological structure, the halloysite mineral compound has a very large reactive surface area. This supports the body’s natural clotting reaction and even heavy bleeding in emergency situations can be stopped quickly and reliably.
SpeedM® is supporting a less traumatic post-treatment. The hemostatic gauze is easy to use. In its sturdy packaging, it is easy to transport and store. It does not require refrigeration and can be used immediately.
SpeedM® is currently undergoing CE certification.

BLEEDING CONTROL

  • Stops moderate to severe bleeding
  • Works also in patients treated with anticoagulants
  • Accelerates body’s natural clotting cascade
    • Tubular shape of Halloysites allows water to be stored inside and the water is extracted from the blood. As a result, platelets are concentrated on the outer sheath and accelerates their adhesion and aggregation, formation of white thrombus. (1)
    • Halloysites are characterized by dipole properties, which
      will influence the coagulation cascade (2)
    • This is a physical mechanism of action.

HOW TO USE

For use by trained first aiders.

SpeedM® is currently undergoing CE certification.

Identify injury, locate active bleedings. Remove the folded gauze from the packaging. Care for the heaviest bleeding first.
Insert one end of the gauze down to the deepest point of the wound. Then stuff and fill the wound cavity tightly from the bottom until the skin surface is reached.
Apply direct, firm pressure for at least 3 minutes or until bleeding stops
Check that the bleeding has stopped. Then apply a pressure bandage. Seek medical attention immediately and show the package.
Carefully remove the compress from the wound. Irrigate the wound with sterile solution.

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

We are committed to further expanding our range of highly effective innovative hemostats.

We focus on the development of products for civil application containing absorbable or antimicrobial properties.
