Wound care is a multi-billion dollar industry in the U.S. U-Heal® offers a proven solution to the rising costs of wound care estimated to be in the billions. The unique device is developed and owned by Helen R. Kimball of Coconut Creek, Florida, a 10+ year experienced Hospice nurse.
The U-Heal® portfolio represents the FDA Class 1 device and includes the US PTO Trademark #86307158, corresponding domain name, and website. As a wound elevation, protection, and prevention device, its testing results show significant mitigation of the risk for tissue damage or infection. The device enables increased blood flow and air circulation. The unique design does not allow direct wound contact with the device and creates the option to use or not use topical medications or wound coverings. Pressure off loading is essential to healing. Pressure redistribution and off-loading are preeminent to the prevention of pressure sores and the healing of existing wounds. Significant benefits include reducing the time, pain, and costs associated with the healing process.
Wound care is a primary function of hospitals and long-term care facilities. Proper wound care is necessary to prevent infection, promote healing of the skin, and, when possible, have a good cosmetic result. Treatment needs are affected by multiple causes of wounds, including injuries, surgery, frostbite, heat or chemical burns, radiation, chronic wounds caused by diabetes or obesity, cardiovascular or peripheral vascular disease, cancer, coma or other mobility issues causing pressure ulcers, better known as bed sores.
Sepsis (septicemia) is a potentially fatal blood infection that is commonly related to serious wound infections. In 2011, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) released the statistics for the 10 leading causes of death by age group. The analysis shows bacterial sepsis is the 7th leading cause for babies less than 1 year old. Septicemia is the 7th leading cause of death for 1-4 year old, the 9th leading cause of death for 55-64 years of age, and the 10th leading cause of death for age groups 5-14, 45-54, and 65+. In addition, 60,000 people are estimated to die from a pressure ulcer, as well as, wound or surgical site complication. (Note: All are most recent statistics available.)
The inventor, a Hospice Nurse, spent 10 years in the development of U-Heal®, and did conduct test studies. Results of a Pressure Mapping Device Study show significant pressure reduction using the U-Heal® wound care device. Results testing statistics, as well as 4 case studies, are shown in a PowerPoint Presentation in the Auction Sale Data. Lot #1236
