Description

An award-winning project that will enable healthcare companies to develop and supply more effective wound dressings.

To develop a new and reliable method for testing how much of the fluid that exudes from wounds can be absorbed by dressings.

The research team succeeded in its goal and has now received the award for Best Clinical or Preclinical Research Award at the 2019 Journal of Wound Care Awards.

Many superabsorbent (SAP) wound dressings are being released on to the market every year, but there has been no validated test specifically designed to assess how well they actually perform in clinical settings.

"Healthcare professionals often make treatment choices based on marketing material and single case studies only".
