Innovations in wound care and healing (TechVision) : Progress toward the ultimate goal of achieving true regeneration
The wound healing industry has undergone both radical and incremental innovations to suit the demands of the growing patient pool. The research report shows how technology convergence is instrumental to the development of advanced wound care products. This research service covers the innovations in this industry, its drivers and challenges and also focuses on the emerging technologies which is set to change the paradigm of wound care management. The trend shows strong focus into tissue regeneration, including the bio-engineered wound healing products. This research service discusses the diffusion and roadmap of the trends and innovations in wound care on a global scale, through a detailed strategic assessment of the industry environment.
-The needs for better, faster, and cost-effective solutions, along with demographic increase in patient pool has increased market opportunities for wound care and healing.
-The wound healing market is fragmented with several technologies, both radical and incremental to suit the needs of individual patients.
-Different modalities such as bio-engineered wound care, moist wound healing, antimicrobial formulation, & devices for wound care can be used alone or in combination depending upon wound type.
-The convergence of technology clusters is responsible for the development of next generation wound healing products.
-The wound care devices incorporated with innovative materials, with properties like non-adherence, highly absorbent and non-allergenic, which are optimum for wound healing.
-The confluence of technology cluster such as sensors and controls offers improved wound care management. Examples: smart bandages, biosensors embedded dressing for infection detection
-The market is driven by the consumer needs, which is improved regeneration properties, improved treatment for wound infection, along with competitive pricing of the novel products.
-Technology innovations and the new business models are being used to meet these demands.
-Currently market is witnessing several innovations in the field of tissue engineering, alternative treatment for antibiotic resistant infections, providing an overall health economic benefit to the patients
-Emerging technologies like three-dimensional (3D) technology, nanotechnology and biosensors are set to change the paradigm of wound care and researchers are currently focused on developing wound care products based on these new and emerging technologies.
-3D technology in skin grafts or dressings helps in mimicking the wound bed structure for effective healing.
-Nanotechnology is useful for delivery of drugs such as silver particles, or antibiotics for faster absorption. -Flexible biosensors are used in dressings or devices maintain temperature, pressure, for optimal healing.
