SURGICAL WOUND CLEANINGUltrasonic-Assisted Wound Debridement (UAW)
Effective and gentle wound cleansing
The new UAW therapy has marked the beginning of an important therapeutic approach to the treatment of chronic and complicated wounds.
Chronic injuries cause a huge psychological burden for patients and involve severe financial burdens.
There was a demand for treatment methods, which would be economical, effective but not painful for the patient.
UAW meets this requirement as it is both effective and cost-effective for both the patient and the treating physician as well as the hospital.
HOW IT WORKS
- Sonoca 185 is used as a generator for UAW treatment.
- The operating frequency is at 25kHz and is transmitted to the handle where it is converted into mechanical vibration.
- Liquid is sprayed which is necessary both for transmitting radio waves to the surface of the wound and for washing the tissue from dead cells and bacteria
They operate at 25 kHz
Unique shapes for different wounds
Used for surface wounds
Twin Ball Tip: :
Used for deep wounds with formed cavities
Used for “torn” wounds (e.g a gap between the toes)
ADVANTAGES FOR THE PATIENT
- Quickly visible results
- Faster healing of wounds
- Healthy tissue is not destroyed
- Biofilms are removed and the bacteria are killed
- Soft-low pain
INDICATIVE CASES THAT REQUIRE THERAPY
- Ulcer crusis (venosum, arteriosum, mixtum)
- Diabetic leg ulcers
- Infected wounds
- Wounds from burns
- Postoperative wounds
- Post traumatic wounds
A typical use of UAW therapy in a diabetic patient whose symptoms are on the rise.
Then we see the effects of UAW and the healing of most of the wound.
