Over 6.5 million Americans suffer from chronic wounds. Chronic wounds are considered serious if they don’t respond to treatment after thirty days of conventional medical care. With our country's aging population and the rise of obesity and chronic diseases such as diabetes, the number of people suffering from hard-to-heal wounds is significant.
The incidence of chronic wounds is highest among diabetics, which often results in amputation if not treated with the latest healing techniques. Chronic wounds can also result from prolonged pressure on the skin, venous and arterial disease and non-healing surgical and radiation damage.
