Over 7 million Americans suffer from chronic, non-healing wounds.
Wounds that have not progressed through the normal process of healing and are open for more than a month are classified as chronic wounds. These wounds are often prevalent in individuals with a history of Type 2 Diabetes, Neuropathy or Peripheral Artery Disease.
Chronic wounds pose a significant risk. When left untreated, these wounds can lead to infection and even amputation. After amputation, there is a 5-year mortality rate of 50%.
80% of diabetic amputations begin as non-healing ulcer. Early treatment of chronic wounds is vital to saving limbs and saving lives.
