Advance the healing process
for your patients and your burn care team.

We understand that burn healing can be a slow and costly process. Multiple challenges stand in your way to achieving rapid, high quality healing:

Life-threatening infections.

The longer burns take to heal, the greater the risk of infection. The most common burn-related complications include cellulitis, pneumonia, septicemia and urinary tract infection.1 These infections cause patients additional suffering and can double hospital costs.2

Debilitating pain.

Burn patients endure pain so intense and prolonged it can interfere with proper wound care.3

Disfiguring scars.

Burn survivors with scar contractures and visible scarring often experience limited mobility, depression, anxiety and psychosocial difficulties.4

Long hospital stays and extended outpatient treatment.

Burns are one of the most resource-intense of all healthcare conditions. Estimated medical costs total approximately $1.5 billion.5

Now is the time to partner and explore the possibilities for quicker less painful debridement, angiogenesis, rapid tissue regeneration and less scar formation.
