Ask a Wellspect employee – what is it that unites us? The answer would be: passion.
The passion for making life better for people with bladder and bowel dysfunction. And that’s why we decided to make a statement – a passion statement:
“We passionately strive to make a real difference every day to everyone who needs our products and services.”
There is a special spirit among Wellspect employees, noticed by everyone who works with us. We have created a culture of team spirit, where sharing knowledge and finding new ways to tackle challenges together is key.
iLean and Feedback
Wellspect is currently undergoing a transformation towards Lean Product Development (LPD). LPD involves the whole of Wellspect since a Lean organization understands customer value and focuses on its key processes to continuously improve them. iLean is a philosophy, completely in line with our Culture Vision.
Most of us are familiar with feedback as a tool. Within the iLean program, developing a strengthened feedback culture defines a common feedback language. We believe everyone will become more confident in continuously giving, receiving and asking for feedback, extending beyond our colleagues to project teams and company–wide relationships – committing, challenging and exploring new opportunities for ourselves, our teams and our company. Most importantly, delivering the benefit to our users.
Wellspect is a business with a heart. We listen carefully to our network of users, healthcare professionals and scientists to find ways to improve continence care. That’s why ‘Advancing together’ has become a common value, which we apply both internally and externally.
We also do this in a genuine and compassionate way, demonstrating a genuine curiosity and concern for our users’ needs. This deep understanding is strengthened by our vast knowledge and experience within the field, ensuring that together, we find the most relevant solutions.
To strengthen our global business environment, we need the diversity of personal backgrounds, skills and experience to support our success and engagement, which enriches daily working life at Wellspect. It inspires innovation as your strengths become our strengths, and helps us deliver a high level of competence.
Diversity and inclusion are important objectives of our company and are fundamental to our culture and core values. It is crucial to meet the challenges of an ever–changing global environment.
We work systematically with diversity and inclusion in our professional processes to enhance everyone’s ability to flourish no matter gender, race, religion, nationality, ethnicity, disability and/or protected classifications, sexual orientation, age or other parameters to include diverse experiences, family configurations and backgrounds.
To increase knowledge and awareness for everyone's unique personality we arrange different activities that embrace diversity and inclusion.
Wellspect is a part of Dentsply Sirona, the world’s largest manufacturer of professional dental solutions.
One might wonder what continence products have to do with teeth, and the simple answer is heritage. Astra Tech had a dental business and a healthcare business. When Astra Tech was acquired by DENTSPLY International (today Dentsply Sirona) both the dental and the healthcare businesses were kept within the group, and the healthcare business became Wellspect.
Our history and headquarters are based in Mölndal, Sweden, but we are a global business with over 1100 employees, operations in 18 countries, and distributors around the world.

We support people suffering from urinary retention or chronic constipation by providing systems for bladder and bowel management.
Some users are paralyzed due to a spinal cord injury or spina bifida, and some have illnesses affecting the bladder, bowel or both. Some may also need our products due to more mechanical issues, such as enlarged prostate, weakened pelvic floor or other conditions.
It’s easy for anyone to get overwhelmed by the daily stream of information, flooding in through an ever–increasing amount of channels. The sheer volume seems to expand while we have less and less time for researching our options. All you want is a solution. A solution that fits you.
That’s why we work to understand what is relevant to you – to map out your needs so we can meet them. We collaborate with users, healthcare professionals and experts in technology, to understand exactly how our products are used and how they can be improved.
We started this journey by inventing the hydrophilic catheter. We set the standard for quality and reliability, and we continue to raise these standards.
All our products are submitted to a rigorous evaluation process, including clinical trials, to ensure they are safe, effective and accessible in the hands of users.
Our investigations don’t end there – we conduct both our own scientific research and provide unrestricted funding support for Investigator Initiated Studies for researchers with great ideas from all over the world.
Our studies have yielded ground-breaking inventions including the hydrophilic coating that ensures smooth catheterization, both on insertion and withdrawal, for our LoFric users. Another of our products – Navina – pioneers equally important innovation as the first intelligent system for bowel management.
Wellspect is committed to delivering 100% safe, efficient and clinically supported products.
