Shieldex® addresses various problems in the field of wound care. Multidrug-resistant germs represent a major problem in medical institutions. Shieldex® products prevent wounds from being infected with these germs. The regular replacement of plasters and dressings also generates environmentally harmful waste that can be avoided with Shieldex®. A further development in terms of wound care is the trend towards telemedicine, whereby Shieldex® helps to optimally care for patients’ wounds remotely.
Shieldex® has been offering innovative solutions for the health and medical market for over 15 years and is particularly used in wound management. The certified antibacterial technology of Shieldex® products counteracts the contamination of open wounds and promotes healing with 99.9% pure silver. Wound contact layers made from Shieldex® material can also be used to treat chronic wounds.
Wound Monitoring Systems
Shieldex® is working on revolutionising monitoring systems for wounds. Without changing the dressing, the condition of the wound can be continuously monitored using an intelligent wound dressing. Sensors determine temperature increases, moisture and expansion. This enables complications and wound healing disorders to be identified and treated at an early stage.
