RTD® Wound Dressing

A new combination ingredient foam to fight chronic wound infection.

Chronic non-healing wounds represent a problem for clinicians. Opened chronic wound are exposed to constant bacterial and fungal infection. Research shows estimating that up to 80% of wounds contain fungi and form mixed fungal-bacterial biofilms, this will delay wound heal causing significant morbidity and mortality especially in elderly, diabetic, and obese populations.

RTD® Wound Dressing is a proprietary highly absorbent antimicrobial polyurethane foam with integrated: The combination of methylene blue, gentian violet and silver plus singlet oxygen (derived from methylene blue) exerts a synergistic and powerful microbial killing for both fungi and bacteria.
The presence of foam capillary suction helps in exudate management, pulls liquefied biofilm and bacteria from wound bed in a wet infected wound.


Collagen & Glycerine Based Moist Wound Healing

Today, collagen and glycerine are used in moist wound healing (visit our products page for more information). Both are key ingredients in any moist wound healing topical solution. Higher content of collagen and glycerine, affords better healing prospects.

Stimulen™ contain a high level of collagen and glycerine to provide the best possible moist wound healing solution.

But why are collagen and glycerine important for wound healing?

Collagen in wounds stimulates growth activity by recruiting fibroblasts into the wound. Fibroblasts are the main cells involved in the production of granulation tissue and are necessary for the regeneration of skin (dermal) for the wound to heal.

Trouble is, as we age, there is a lack of collagen in our bodies. This is also true in diabetic patients (decrease of 42%), which makes it difficult for wounds to heal, in many cases. In fact, wound healing in some cases is impossible.

This is where a collagen based moist wound healing solution makes all the difference. Stimulen, for example, provide the collagen needed to stimulate fibroblast recruitment and dermal regeneration while keeping the wound moist and protecting it from the external environment. Stimulen are scientifically proven in studies that would encourage wound to speed up wound heal & granulation.

Glycerine on the other hand, works as a cleanser to cleanse the wound, reducing the bio-burden. A clean environment is important for good wound healing. Together with collagen, glycerine works synergistically to improve the overall condition of a chronic wound.

The Healing Difference of Stimulen™

Diabetic Wound Care       Diabetic Wound Care
According to scientific research, 25% of all diabetics develop foot related complications, which 5%-10% may face the risk of amputation. Ironically, while amputation is performed to save lives, it may often signal the death knell for many. Why this occurs is yet to be proven conclusively, but there is a clear co-relation between post-amputation patients having a limited lifespan of only 5-6 years after the procedure.

With more than 3.4 million diabetics in Malaysia, caring for wounds has become top priority to the medical professionals due to complications from a diabetic condition.
