Why is wound management important? Treatment of wounds
due to chronic diseases is a serious socio-economic
burden in the world. Acute wounds usually occur as
damage to the subcutaneous layer or damage to
full-thickness skin as a result of surgery or trauma.
Wound is a factor that affects a large number of
patients and reduces the quality of life and can be
expressed as a kind of interruption in the continuity of
body tissue. It can occur with various physical,
chemical and mechanical trauma or medical interventions.
Traditional and modern dressings, which are often used
in wound dressing, are effective but are still
insufficient to regenerate lost tissue. Tissue
engineering is based on the principle of regeneration
and healing of the damaged area of biomaterials
produced with biomimetic approach in in-vitro
environment if damaged tissues or organs cannot fulfill
their functions (Langer and Vacanti, 1993). Today,
tissue engineering products and biomaterials developed
using tissue scaffolds, cells and biologically active
molecules are successfully used in regenerative
medicine. Such innovations provide faster, successful
recovery, tissue regeneration, and efficient oxygen
BUGAMED Wound Dressing was designed as a product that
treats and targets patients with chronic wounds, with a
particular focus on Diabetic Foot Ulcers (DFUs). The
product is currently being adapted to mass production.
We will be sharing the developments in our product with
you in the future.
