Haddenham Easywrap has been available since 2016 and since then case studies have been presented to demonstrate the efficacy of the product in clinical practice. The aim of the article is to demonstrate how its use in chronic oedema, and wound care is beneficial and cost effective and how versatile one product can be in treating both of these conditions. Information gained from the evaluation of easywrap in wound care and management of chronic oedema, demonstrates that easywrap can be a suitable cost effective alternative to traditional compression therapy modalities, whilst improving concordance and quality of life.

According to the Research Group for Primary Medical Care (PMV), approximately 890,000 people in Germany were suffering from a chronic wound in 2012. This corresponds to a prevalence of 1.1%. Ulcus ...
Chronic edema/lymphedema is defined as edema present for more than 3 months. It is underrecognized and undertreated. The International Lymphedema Framework developed an international study, Lymphedema...
Venous ulceration is a major burden on the NHS. Current treatment involves bandaging therapy which is replaced on a once or twice weekly basis. The Juxta-CuresTM device offers an alternati...
The purpose of the study is to test non-inferiority of chronic Venous Leg Ulcer (VLU) area closure at 16 weeks with a dual action pneumatic compression device compared to multi-layer banda...
The TPPT study is aiming to assess tissue and biomolecular components of chronic lower limb oedema (CO). The investigators working hypothesis is that according to the aetiology of CO, the ...
Chronic venous leg ulcers (VLU) are painful, debilitating wounds that place a significant burden on the patient, their family, and healthcare resources. Treating VLU can present a signific...

The application of a vacuum across the surface of a wound through a foam dressing cut to fit the wound. This removes wound exudates, reduces build-up of inflammatory mediators, and increases the flow of nutrients to the wound thus promoting healing.
Removal of degenerated and necrotic epithelium and underlying connective tissue of a periodontal pocket in an effort to convert a chronic ulcerated wound to an acute surgical wound, thereby insuring wound healing and attachment or epithelial adhesion, and shrinkage of the marginal gingiva. The term is sometimes used in connection with smoothing of a root surface or ROOT PLANING. (Jablonski; Illustrated Dictionary of Dentistry, 1982)
Tight coverings for the foot and leg that are worn to aid circulation in the legs and prevent the formation of EDEMA and DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS. PNEUMATIC COMPRESSION STOCKINGS serve a similar purpose especially for bedridden patients and following surgery.
A process whereby multiple RNA transcripts are generated from a single gene. Alternative splicing involves the splicing together of other possible sets of EXONS during the processing of some, but not all, transcripts of the gene. Thus a particular exon may be connected to any one of several alternative exons to form a mature RNA. The alternative forms of mature MESSENGER RNA produce PROTEIN ISOFORMS in which one part of the isoforms is common while the other parts are different.
Pathologic process consisting of a partial or complete disruption of the layers of a surgical wound.
