Chronic Wounds

WMCS REFERENCES FOR CHRONIC WOUND TREATMENTS

Comprehensive early research on the use of WMCS treatment for various types of chronic wounds has been published in the International Wound Journal by Dr Peter G Wirsing at Wundzentrum in Ostalb – Klinikum Aalen, Germany and others:

Peter G Wirsing et al. “Wireless micro current stimulation – an innovative electrical stimulation method for the treatment of patients with leg and diabetic foot ulcers”. International Wound Journal ISSN 1742-4801

RANDOMIZED CONTROL TRIAL (RCT)

A double blinded, placebo-controlled trial regarding Wireless Micro Current Stimulation (WMCS) for chronic leg ulcer treatment has recently been completed at Bronovo Hospital in the Hague, Netherlands. Principal investigator: Dr. M. Larsen, MD, Phd. This trial was completed in late 2018 and publication is expected in Q3 2019.

WMCS FOR CHRONIC WOUNDS

Wounds that do not heal within 3 months are normally referred to as Chronic or “hard-to-heal” wounds. There are many types of Chronic Wounds, including:

  • Diabetic foot ulcers (Neuropathy/Angiopathy)
  • Pressure ulcers / Decubitus ulcers
  • Venous leg ulcers
  • Arterial leg ulcers
  • Mixed leg ulcers
  • Leg ulcers of lymphological origin
  • Leg ulcers of dermatological origin (e.g. pyoderma)
  • Other, e.g. post-operative healing disorders (e.g. after heart surgery)

As a result of the global epidemic of non-communicable diseases such as Diabetes and Cardiovascular disease, the Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of Chronic wounds globally is estimated at an alarming 7.6%.

WMCS treatment of Chronic Wounds:

Before starting WMCS treatment, it is important to correctly diagnose the type of chronic wound and adapt the correct primary treatment protocol.

  • Examine and treat the cause of wound.
  • Manage the pain.
  • Examine the periwound skin.
  • Take a swab (for obtaining a wound culture).
  • Examine wound exudate.

TYPICAL WMCS TREATMENT PLAN FOR CHRONIC WOUNDS:

  • Diabetic foot ulcers (Neuropathy/Angiopathy)
  • Cleansing/Debridement of the wound (if needed)
  • WMCS treatment for 45-60 min with 1.5 μA
  • Apply wound dressing
  • Repeat 1-3 above 3 times/week after irrigation of the wound

The healing times of Chronic Wounds depends on many factors, such as the age and size of the wound, the existence of infection and/or pain, the underlying cause of the wound (and if this cause can be eliminated or improved), sufficiency of diagnostic measures and the patient’s compliance to medical procedure/advice.

EXPECTED RESULTS FROM WMCS THERAPY FOR CHRONIC WOUNDS:

  • Healing time drastically reduced, typically a factor of 2-3 times faster than with traditional wound treatment.
  • Non-invasive pain free treatment
  • Excellent tolerability – no significant side effects
  • Treatment can be carried out in combination with other applied methods
