A few short years ago, Suzanne Moloney was a pastry chef trying to manage daily life with Hidradenitis Suppurativa. She recognized, as many patients have, that current wound management offerings are cumbersome, time-consuming, and often damaging to the skin. Despite no formal training as a doctor or scientist, she realized that as a patient – the real expert in living with HS – she could do what she could to create a solution.

Now, her designs for an adhesive-free quick-change dressing solution have been accepted to the BioExcel medical technology accelerator program at National University of Ireland Galway and her story is being featured in the Irish Times. When an individual with Hidradenitis Suppurativa recognizes that our needs are not being met, and decides to do something about it, she changes the game for all of us!

This most recent achievement follows other awards from Irish Dublin BIC Innovate programme and Inter Trade Ireland Seedcorn.

We thank Suzanne and wish her the greatest success as we watch closely for updates on the development of this groundbreaking product!  For news and information about Hidramed Solutions, visit hidramedsolutions.com.
