The Debrisoft monafilament debridement pad for use in acute or chronic wounds
Medical technology guidance
National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE)
New NICE Guidance recommends the use of Debrisoft as part of the management of acute or chronic wounds in community settings. According to NICE, hundreds of thousands of patients with wounds requiring debridement could benefit from Debrisoft. Using Debrisoft on these patients could save the NHS in the region of £15 million annually.
