KCI was founded in 1976 by Dr. Jim Leininger, an emergency room physician who helped pioneer the use of motion therapy for patients who are immobile due to critical injury. The company makes products for the wound care, bariatric and critical care markets. In 1996, KCI introduced an innovative approach to the treatment and management of serious, complex wounds with negative-pressure wound therapy. Its Vacuum Assisted Closure (VAC) system is used to treat complex, hard-to-heal wounds, ulcers and partial thickness burns.
