“I was impressed by the speed of granulation. Especially after having observed the healing process for 7 weeks before treatment started with 1 Primary Wound Dressing , I was suprised about the positive development. The application of a secondary dressing is often a time-consuming task in such locations, but when applying 1 Primary Wound Dressing, the time for a dressing change is reduced significantly as the wound doesn’t stick to the dressing thanks to the oil in the spray, this is especially helpful for the carers.”
