Who Is Jackson Medical?
In his final year of college, founder, Ian Jackson was involved in a motorcycle accident where he received numerous medical implants. This event led Ian to withdraw from his medical school pursuit and motivated the founding of Jackson Medical Solutions. He managed to recruit a team of talented engineers who were equally as passionate about preventative medical devices. Mainly, the group has been interested in addressing the major disparities in medicine, specifically regarding post-operative care. Current medical device design leaves room for improvement as they unnecessarily complicate patient conditions. It is our goal to maximize patient comfort and safety while minimizing healthcare costs by making better technology that is preventative and accessible for all.
We accept the consequences of our actions and hold ourselves to a higher standard of responsibility.
We started this company with the patient experience in mind. We strive to develop the technology that betters humanity.

We are a dedicated team of professionals with the goal of bettering ourselves and our community.
Meet Our Team
Innovative, inspired, professionals determined to help everyone.
Founder & President
Before the accident, Ian planned to attend medical school for endocrinology. He reassessed his career plans after his experience as a patient and decided, instead, to improve the patient experience by improving the tools of care. After graduating with a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering, Ian founded Jackson Medical. Ian specializes in idea generation for product development. He is fueled by his intrigue to learn new technology and implement high precision tools for healthcare staff.
