Patients with chronic non-healing wounds or ulcers and injuries often require professional treatment and care while staying in medical establishments and when they get back home.

A wound that won’t heal is a constant source of pain and frustration, especially for elderly patients. There are several groups of people who are at risk for non-healing wounds. It includes patients with: 

  • Diabetes, anemia, cancer, and other long-term medical conditions;
  • Heart issues, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, or varicose veins;
  • Immobility, such as being confined to a wheelchair or bed;
  • Unhealthy habits such as smoking, not eating a healthy diet, or not being active;
  • A weak immune system from chemotherapy, immunosuppressive medications, or medical conditions such as AIDS.
