Unique Natural Topical Ointment Meets the Fast Growing Demand for Patient-Centric, Cost-Efficient Advanced Wound Healing & Prevention Products
Silicon Valley, CALIFORNIA – October 26, 2012
The treatment of chronic wounds is challenging and imposes heavy healthcare burdens globally. This is a fast growing problem as the population with the underlying diseases that cause chronic wounds are on the rise globally: diabetes, vascular diseases, obesity, and the process of aging. There also exist many practical issues for treating and preventing chronic wounds: fragmentation in the care settings, the logistics of delivering products to patients, and the costs of chronic care.
To meet the continuing-education needs of multidisciplinary skin and wound care practitioners, from novice to expert, the 27th Annual Clinical Symposium on Advances in Skin & Wound Care, organized by the publisher of Advances in Skin & Wound Care, was held in Las Vegas on October 20-23,2012 to provide a forum for educational sessions and interactive workshops that offer comprehensive wound management strategies. About 1,000 multidisciplinary practitioners attended this conference—nurses, podiatrists, vascular surgeons, physical therapists, dietitians and others who manage skin and wound care patients across the continuum of health care in the US.
At this conference WinVivo's presentation of its unique natural topical ointment for advanced skin and wound care attracted large crowds of practitioners. Most of them were very impressed with the unusually high efficacy in healing recalcitrant chronic wounds, such as diabetic foot ulcers, venous leg ulcers and late stage pressure ulcers that have resisted treatment using the state-of-the art advanced wound care modalities. Wound care specialists, who are used to employing a garden variety of wound dressings, gels, ointments, and devices throughout the course of the treatment, found WinVivo's all-in-one topical treatment refreshing and exciting. Many of them shared with WinVivo their enthusiasm of finding such a comprehensive yet simple modality for their busy practice, allowing them to obtain optimal clinical outcomes.
Managers and physicians from advanced wound care centers also saw additional benefits of using the WINVIVO Wound Ointment—saving costs and accelerating healing. Some of them already used WINVIVO to successfully close long-standing wounds of patients that have stayed open for years. They also found that topical treatment of WINVIVO between sessions of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) resulted in astonishingly fast healing they have never experienced in their careers.
Another important theme of this conference is on prevention of recurrent skin ulcers for high risk patients. Owing to its ease of use and stability in a wide temperature range, WINVIVO can also be carried around as a "first aid" for rapidly healing small lesions, cuts, scrapes, and early-stage skin ulcers of patients with diabetic neuropathy, chronic venous insufficiency/vascular diseases, and/or compromised immunity (end stage renal disease and organ-transplants). Many practitioners were pleasantly surprised and delighted to find such an efficacious and cost-effective tool available for them for the first time for achieving true prevention of chronic wounds.
WinVivo is an innovative natural health care company based in Silicon Valley. Its international team of biomedical professionals combines the best from the East and West to develop highly efficacious advanced skin and wound care products from botanicals with their health benefits demonstrated over centuries of use in Asia and such functions further validated by modern scientific and clinical research.
