-- Functionalities such as higher absorption and moisture adaptability differentiate Enluxtra from competitors
MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, June 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the wound care dressing market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes OSNovative Systems Inc. with the 2014 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation Leadership. The company's self-adaptive wound dressing, Enluxtra™, provides better clinical outcomes, remarkably simplifies wound care procedures and significantly reduces cost of care. Enluxtra uses OSNovative's innovative, feedback-driven technology to offer the best solution for standardizing wound care in home and field medicine.
Enluxtra represents a fundamentally new category of dynamic, multifunctional, self-adaptive wound care products. While in direct contact with the wound, the dressing material is capable of sensing and analyzing the wound condition. It then automatically and reversibly adjusts its function to accommodate the wound's needs, which may frequently and unpredictably change.
The dressing's ability to automatically adjust its function depending on the wound's needs allows clinicians to keep the dressing on the wound significantly longer, resulting in fewer disruptions of wound homeostasis, which is a known critical condition for fast wound healing.
The introduction of this proprietary, self-adaptive wound care technology opens a new direction in modern wound care delivery, bringing it to a more advanced level of clinical care, while dramatically reducing treatment costs for care providers and patients.
In view of the deepening financial constraints of society, self-adaptive wound care technology may help to meet the fast-growing demand for wound care, driven by an aging population and the spread of chronic diseases such as diabetes.
Enluxtra's adaptability to moisture levels makes the dressing an ideal choice for virtually any wound type. Higher absorption and structural integrity distinguish it from competing products. Further, Enluxtra overcomes the constraints associated with utilizing multiple products in the right order at the appropriate phase of healing, removing the guesswork from wound management.
Patients prefer Enluxtra for its drug-free pain reduction capabilities, excellent odor management, and reduced frequency of dressing changes. More than 20,000 patients have been treated with Enluxtra in the United States, an endorsement of the technology's superior qualities.
"The use of Enluxtra translates into significant cost-savings and successful treatment outcomes," said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Geethu Roshan Verghese. "By addressing the needs of healthcare professionals and patients alike, Enluxtra has effectively bridged vital gaps in the wound care industry."
