CovaWound™ Product Performance

Clinical Evidence and Clinical Experiences with CovaWound™

Wirral University Teaching Hospital converts to CovaWound™ Silicone Foams, Alginates and Hydrocolloids
Wirral University Teaching Hospita

Wirral University Teaching Hospital converts to CovaWound™ Silicone Foams, Alginates and Hydrocolloids. Interest in the CovaWound™ range was initially created through analysis of a TR 18 report, comparing the costs of currently used silicone, foam, and hydrocolloid dressings, with their CovaWound™ equivalents. This showed the potential for a 28% saving on like for like products.

A Case Series Evaluation of CovaWound™ Alginate.
A Case Series Evaluation

Undertaken by The Welsh Wounds Innovation Centre, and presented at The Wounds UK Annual Conference in 2019, this study details the findings of a case series evaluating CovaWound™ Alginate as a primary dressing for moderate to highly exuding lower limb wounds. Preliminary findings suggest that CovaWound™ Alginate is a highly absorbent alginate dressing, which holds exudate in the dressing preventing maceration and excoriation to the peri-wound skin. The study concludes that CovaWound™ Alginate is an effective dressing when used under compression therapy.
