Diabetic foot ulcers have traditionally proven difficult to treat: the shape of the foot and toes, combined with flexion and the pressure of walking make it challenging to securely dress the wound. With negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT), it has proven somewhat more difficult, where an airtight seal is essential. With the Forefoot 50cc dressing, the Kalypto NPD 1000 system has found an effective solution.
While the advantages of negative pressure wound therapy itself are numerous, the benefits of the Kalypto NPD 1000 system in treating foot ulcers are easy to see. With the Kalypto Forefoot 50cc dressing, application is done in five simple steps, with no cutting or customization of the dressing; instead, the standard-size dressing is simply secured around the patient’s foot, much like a stepping into a bootie. Kalypto’s advanced wound dressing technology discretely contains fluids, so no collection canister is needed, and the compact, lightweight (8 oz.) pump can easily be worn or carried without being noticed.
