Wound Care Economics
In determining the most cost-effective and efficacious treatment path, it is challenging to accurately determine all costs related to non-healing wounds. We do know that treating non-healing wounds is costly, both in terms of time and resources required. The annual cost of chronic healing wounds in the U.S. can reach $25 billion. (Staylor, 2009)
Fortunately, most wounds naturally advance through the healing process in a matter of weeks. However, not all wounds move through the process as expected and become non-healing wounds. MIST Therapy® addresses these barriers to healing by stimulating the environment, actively impacting the wound bed and accelerating healing.
