The Wound Wrap:Why?Laser and/or robotic surgery require several small punctures to the skin often too far apart to be covered by traditional bandagesCurrent wound care options are insufficient and require adhesive to be applied directly onto the skinSignificant rise in laser and robotic surgery in urology, plastic surgery, oncology, and other areas of medicine Approx. 5.7 million patients a year in the U.S. alone are affected by chronic woundsChronic wounds are usually on hard to cover areas of the body like the foot or leg
The Wound Wrap:A Better ChoiceFully lined, disposable product that wraps around the body covering a larger surface areaEliminates fluid leakage due to gravity and adhesive shifting No more ruined clothes, linens, or great discomfort No more adhesive pressure or pain on tender skin around wound or incisionReplaces current wound dressing methods that are not designed for chronic or laser surgery woundsBoth U.S. and Foreign Utility Patent applications filed through Russ Weinzimmer & Associates, P.C.
The Wound Wrap:How?A larger enclosing bandage.Robust cuffs to minimize leakage.Layered to offset direct wound pressure. Non-adhesive inner layer.Highly-absorbent middle layer.Leak-proof outer layer.Various bandage shapes to enclose different parts of the body.
The Wound Wrap:How?Strong adhesive strips & tabs along the sides of the bandageWraps around the wounded body partProvides strong support without direct adhesive contact on the skinAdded benefit of bypassing uncomfortable bandage removalAddresses all of the primary flaws of current post-laser surgery and chronic wound dressings
