Negative and positive pressure therapy for excellent wound care
C-Wave+ is a new innovative technique, especially designed for use in modern wound care. By means of use of high energetic acoustic pressure wave at the cellular level, regeneration will occur so that the acute or chronic wound can heal fast.
C-Wave+ creates biphasic waves with a high positive and negative pressure. The pressure is not mechanically generated (eg. suction pump system), but rather through a sophisticated technology device that creates and delivers acoustic pressure waves in the shock wave spectrum.
This C-Wave+ pressure wave reaches after a fex nanoseconds a positive pressure of 380.000 mm Hg, causing the cells and tissue to compress. Micro-changing effects occur which starts up the process of cellular communication (cytokinetic activity) and expression (start-up enhancement of growth factors, stem cells and molecules). Immediately after delivery of the positive pressure component the negative phase of the pressure wave follows which makes cells and tissue interact. The delivered negative pressure per pulse is 67.000 mm Hg and causes cavities, which reflects in cellular activation and other biological effects that makes healing re-initialize. In other words the cells and the tissue experience a "push and pull" effect in a continuous and rapid succession.
This advanced wound care is recommended for the following conditions:
Second degree thickess burns
Postoperative healing disorders
Protocol and succession
The execution of the treatment is simple and effective:
The applicator is positioned on the wound, after cleaning and debridement, with a sterile sleeve and some gel.
After this, the treatment that will only last several minutes can begin.
Medical-monitoring or possibly 'offloading' according to the standard procedure.
A fully developed protocol (with calender/treatment of various injuries), is available on request.
After the initial treatment there is a transition period in which the wound heals. If needed additional treatments can be done after checking the evolution of the wound healing.
The C-Wave+ is based on a technology of shockwave treatment for kidney stones since the 80's and is continuing to develop the highest quality and safety for both the applicator executor and the patient.
The benefits for your practice:
Shockwave treatment is already scientifically proven in urology, orthopedics and traumatology and is used on daily basis. Also for wound care we can mention similar benefits with lower operating costs (intra- and extramural), increase in clinical efficiency, reducing waste improving quality of life and comfort for in the hospital and/or home care.
For doctors and nurses, the C-Wave+ is a safe and comfortable treatment, where post- procedure actually helps to close the wound with a primary or secondary treatment. The patients, doctors, specialists and wound care nurses benefit together with the patient of faster closing wounds.
In addition, a recent double-blind randomized placebo clinical study, showed that the C-Wave+ technique heals the diabetic foot ulcer not only faster in time but also in size. Moreover, the same study shows that this technology with a recurrence rate of 4,5% compared to orther applications, scores very positive, thus providing budgetary control.
In the system of current healthcare it is not enough just to heal a wound, but new technologies are evaluated for their ability to reduce costs.
The C-Wave+ obtains very good results in terms of cost-effectiveness. A treatment protocol can also easily be integrated in existing wounds protocol in hospitals, private practices or home care organizations.
