Anscare Presents Innovative Post-Operative Wound Care Solution for Orthopedic Applications

31 Oct.2023

On October 21, 2023, Anscare showcased its SIMO Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) system at a joint symposium organized by multiple medical associations in Taiwan. SIMO, a mobile and battery-free device, offers a distinctive solution for post-operative orthopedic-related wound care.

 With aging societies, it is predicted that by 2050, individuals aged 65 and above will account for 15.8% of the total global population. This demographic shift is raising specific health concerns, particularly with the growing number of patients suffering from degenerative joint diseases. As a result, the demand for total knee replacement surgeries is growing. 

To address this challenge, the medical field is constantly searching for innovative ways to care for patients’ wounds after surgery. Negative pressure therapy is leading the way and gaining popularity because research (reference 1) has shown that it promotes linear wound care and reduces the risk of infection. This can save time, money, and manpower associated with post-operative wound care. 

 Anscare's SIMO NPWT system is an effective treatment for post-operative orthopedic joint wounds that necessitate an extended healing period. It significantly expedites and shortens the wound healing time, reduces the frequency of dressing changes, and can be easily applied to a variety of wound types. This makes it a practical solution that enhances the quality of life for patients during the wound healing process. 

Going forward, Anscare is committed to further cultivating its expertise in wound care and promoting the use of the SIMO NPWT system, offering ever-more advanced solutions for wound management.
