The WCT team is dedicated to research and the development, manufacture and sale of devices and systems for medical treatment using electrotherapy or physiotherapy techniques.
These techniques have been validated in clinical practice covering a period of 20 years.
This experience enables the selection of the most effective techniques and the creation of devices which are specially adapted for the therapeutic needs of patients.
The company's philosophy is to produce devices which are sufficiently automated and simple to use in order to make them accessible to as many patients as possible. This is why Care-Me has been designed only to treat migraines and migraine-related disorders.
WCT's expertise comes from in its multidisciplinary team, which covers the various medical, technical, logistical and commercial aspects.
It works with partners in the areas of manufacturing, logistics and sales, but manages the medical aspect on its own.
The WCT medical team is directed by a Neurophysiologist, Doctor of Medicine and Doctor of Science in Behavioural and Cognitive Neuroscience, who is qualified in Clinical Neurophysiology and Electrophysiotherapy.
It is he who chooses the techniques used by relying on his expertise in Neurophysiology of the Central and Peripheral Nervous System, Electrophysiology, Neurochemistry of the Central Nervous System and Cognitive and Behavioural Neuroscience.
Doctor of Medicine of the Faculty of Limoges.
Doctor of Sciences in Neurosciences: Neurophysiology, Electrophysiology, Neurochemistry of the Central and Peripheral Nervous System Neuropharmacology, Cognitive and Behavioural Neurosciences. (Marseille-Lumigny)
Graduate Degree in Clinical Neurophysiology from Pierre and Marie Curie University Paris (UPMC)(Pitié-Salpêtrière)
Graduate Degree in Electrophysiotherapy from Paul Sabatier University (Toulouse-Rangueil)
Knight of the National Order of Merit
These techniques have been developed over fifteen years of Fundamental Animal and Human Research validated during Clinical Experience in the Treatment of Chronic Pain and Functional Neurological Investigations at the Pain Treatment Centre and the Functional Investigations Department over a period of twenty years.
He has applied for and been awarded a European Patent for the Care-Me device and its derivatives.
The doctor who created the Care-Me device was assisted by the expertise of the Electronic and Microtechnical Laboratory of the Institute of Micro- and Nanotechnology (MNT_LEMI) of the College of Engineering and Management in the Canton of Vaud (HEIG-VD) for the development and optimisation of the electronics of Care-Me.
The HEIG-VD is dependent on the University of Geneva-Lausanne and on the canton of Vaud.

Head of studies for the development of the device
The products developed by WCT gain recognition through the systematic filing of Invention and Development Patents which are studied, prepared and filed by an intellectual property specialist who has an intellectual property firm in France and Switzerland and is the company administrator for WCT.
Devices spread by WCT are made in Switzerland, by outer disposants participants of the labels qualities necessary for the international ratifications of products (IT, ISO, and Made in Switzerland).
WCT is committed to quality certification processes EN ISO 9001:2000 and EN ISO 13485:2003.
The Care-Me product was designed in accordance with the European Medical Devices Directive 93/42/CEE (and its amendments), and the following standards: EN IEC 60601-1, EN IEC 60601-1-2, EN IEC 60601-1-11, EN IEC 60601-2-10, EN IEC 62304, EN IEC 62366, EN 980, EN ISO 13485 and EN ISO 14971.
It has successfully passed all security tests required for medical devices IIa as part of CE certification following review and approval of the clinical study file.
Care-Me® is certified CE Medical category IIa.
