Chronic Wounds


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

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.


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.

  • 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.

  • 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
