Another first in private – the VEC team used the TW02 device for a non-healing chronic wound present for 6 months. After 3 days of wound therapy with the device the wound was looking pinker and cleaner with the patient feeling much less pain!
Topical Oxygen Therapy
Topical oxygen therapy has gained attention in recent years for its potential benefits in the management of chronic wounds. It involves the application of high-concentration oxygen directly to the wound bed, which can help promote healing and tissue regeneration.
The main role of topical oxygen is to increase the oxygen supply to the wound area. This is important because chronic wounds often have reduced levels of oxygen, which can hinder the healing process. By delivering concentrated oxygen to the wound, topical oxygen therapy aims to create an environment that is more conducive to healing.
What is TW02?
TW02, also known as Topical Wound Oxygen (TWO2), is a specific type of topical oxygen therapy that is used for the management of chronic wounds. It involves the application of a sterile, oxygen-rich gel directly to the wound bed.
What are the benefits of TW02?
The TW02 gel contains a high concentration of oxygen and is designed to create an oxygen-rich environment around the wound. This can help promote wound healing by increasing oxygen levels, which are often reduced in chronic wounds.
TW02 therapy has several potential benefits. Firstly, the increased oxygen levels can stimulate the growth of new blood vessels, improving blood flow to the wound area. This can enhance the delivery of essential nutrients and remove waste products, supporting the healing process.
Additionally, TW02 therapy has been found to have antimicrobial properties. The oxygen-rich environment created by the gel can inhibit the growth of bacteria, reducing the risk of infection and promoting a healthier wound-healing environment.
