Chronic wound healing through clinical partnerships 2022/23
We are seeking senior tissue viability nurses, willing to embrace and drive innovation advance in leg ulcer healing, to join our Partner-With-Us program.
The Partner-With-Us program precedes the imminent publication of statistically significant randomised controlled study that compares the rate of wound healing in venous leg ulcer patients receiving geko™ device as an adjuvant to compression therapy, compared to compression therapy alone.
A transformative innovation, the geko™ device is a small, self-adhesive, wearable neuromuscular electro-stimulator (NMES) that is applied to the skin just below the knee, over the head of the fibula. It delivers a gentle intermittent electrical pulse, once per second, to the common peroneal nerve. This elicits a muscular twitch that activates the venous muscle pumps of the leg and foot, increasing venous, arterial, and microvascular blood flow – transporting oxygenated blood to the wound bed and edge to promote wound healing.
In addition to the benefit of better patient outcomes and the release of significant costs saving for primary care, using the devices, TVNs keen to join the Partner-With-Us program – to drive innovation advance – will gain:
