About Us

Our Story

Vomaris Innovations, Inc. specializes in bioelectric technology that has the potential to revolutionize regeneration, healing, and recovery. The company name is derived from nature’s remarkable ability to generate electricity when voltage potential (Vo) combines with a conductive medium like saline (mar, meaning the ‘sea’ in Spanish). This is the foundational principle of Vomaris’s patented Advanced Microcurrent Technology®, which is defining the bioelectric wound care market.

Bioelectric technology from Vomaris is the only platform in the world that powers a new generation antimicrobial dressing for the wound and incisional care markets.

Our Mission

Vomaris’s mission is to harness microcell battery-generated electricity to power improved healing, and the future of performance and recovery.
