Kerry & Kathryn Logan
Kerry Logan ABD in engineering at Purdue and Kathryn Logan with a BS degree in supervision from Purdue, served as primary caregivers for their Mother who was severely disabled for 30 years. She suffered from diabetes, strokes, high blood pressure and was nearly blind. Due to her condition, she had many wound care needs. To improve the quality of life for her, they invented and designed a unique pneumatic compression device (PCD) that provided what they saw as clinic-grade treatment in their own home. The device enabled her to keep both of her legs, despite recommended amputation. Further, AVT’s device enabled rapid wound healing from ulcers common to other diabetic patients and those with poor circulation or arterial insufficiencies. Their Mother’s doctors were so impressed with the device they urged them to start a business to manufacture the device so that more patients could access this technology in-home, at a reduced cost.
