Salts Healthcare was founded in 1701 by brothers John and William Salt who started out as apprentice locksmiths in Wolverhampton before John became established as a surgeons’ instrument maker and cutler. Salts Healthcare ventured into Stomal Therapy in 1948 when Edward Salt started working with Professor Bryan Brooke of Birmingham General Hospital to hand-produce ostomy bags (Professor Brooke perfected the eversion technique for suturing stomas). The extensive knowledge accumulated over decades of association with patients and Stomal Therapy Nurses has resulted in the development of unique appliances particularly in relation to ostomy hydrocolloids. Salts provide a diverse range of ostomy pouches together with ostomy accessories such as seals, wipes and support garments. The company is still in family hands with Phillip, Peter and Robert Salt making regular visits to Australia and New Zealand.

AinsCorp Pty Ltd was established in 2008 with the goal of supplying exceptional medical devices within Australia and New Zealand. AinsCorp operates in the Ostomy and Complex Wounds and Fistula medical device markets in which the organisation has had decades of experience at all levels. AinsCorp has an exclusive agreement with Salts Healthcare and is proud to promote such their unique and exceptional products of exceptional quality. In 2018 Ainscorp and Salts Healthcare celebrated their 10 year anniversary of working together.

We look forward to welcoming you to our stand at the 42nd AASTN National Conference.
