FORT WORTH, Texas, Oct. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Wound Management Technologies, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: WNDM) a rapidly growing provider of specialty medical products, announced today that its subsidiary Wound Care Innovations, LLC will exhibit at the 24th Annual Clinical Symposium on Advances in Skin & Wound Care: The Conference for Prevention and Healing, which opens on October 22 in San Antonio.
Dr. Jane Fore MD, FAPWCA, FACCWS, medical director of the Tri-State Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center in Clarkston, WA, will present the results of her clinical study that showed that the use of hydrolyzed collagen (CellerateRx) increased the efficiency of healing in skin tears/flaps. Most were resolved within one week with a single application. Her abstract is entitled, "Activated Collagen: An Evidence Based Skin Tear Study."
Over 1100 multidisciplinary practitioners--nurses, physicians, podiatrists, physical therapists, dieticians, and others who manage skin and wound care patients across the continuum of health care are expected to attend. The conference will provide continuing-education needs of multidisciplinary skin and wound care practitioners, from novice to expert, with educational sessions and interactive workshops that offer comprehensive wound management strategies.
Dr. Fore said, "I am delighted to be presenting this abstract on the use of CellerateRx on skin tears and flaps. I have been using CellerateRx in my wound care protocols for over five years. It is an essential part of my successful wound care treatments. More of the regional nursing homes in my area are taking my skin tear protocol (CellerateRx) and are adapting it into their facilities due to the outcomes and cost effectiveness."
Cathy Bradshaw, president of Wound Care Innovations, said, "Skin tears represent a major problem in the elderly and compromised patients. Untreated skin tears can serve as a portal of entry for infection and be a source of pain for the patient. Their treatment can also have an impact on facilities' resources. This evidence based abstract demonstrates that the use of CellerateRx is not only effective in the management of skin tears, but also very cost effective as well, as shown by resolution with only one application."
CellerateRx is FDA cleared for use on acute and chronic wounds which includes but is not limited to pressure ulcers (stages I-IV), traumatic wounds, diabetic ulcers, surgical wounds, venous stasis ulcers, ulcers due to arterial insufficiency, superficial wounds, and first and second degree burns.
