WoundEx® > Healing Method Principle
Moist Wound Healing is a modern method of management of acute and chronic wounds. Already in the 1960s, it was proven that there is a 40 % shorter healing period with wounds healed in a moist environment compared to dry gauze dressing. The liquid secreted from the wound contains a number of growth factors and nutrition agents supporting successful healing process. Modern materials used for wound dressing (WoundEx) are designed to promote the wound moist environment. First clinical studies performed during the 1970s document the healing time reduction upon this new methodology application. Despite, it took another 30 years to implement the moist healing into general medical practice. The main moist wound healing advantages are namely the 40 % shorter healing period and hospitalization, lower pain factor, less dressing pad changes and lower costs.
