Pressure ulcers (pressure sores and/or bedsores) are injuries to the skin and underlying tissue, mostly caused by prolonged pressure on the skin. Pressure ulcers are a type of injury that breaks down the skin and underlying tissue. The areas that are particularly prone to pressure sores are those that cover the bony areas such as occiput, trochanters, sacrum, malleoli and heel. They can happen to anyone, but commonly affect individuals confined to a bed or sitting in a chair or wheelchair for long periods of time. The treatment of ulcers is planned with an aim to reverse the factors that have originally caused the ulcer. Pressure ulcers treatment include using special mattresses to reduce/relieve pressure, regularly changing a position, and dressings to help heal the ulcer. Sometimes, surgery may be needed. Bedsores can develop over hours or days. Most sores heal with treatment, but some never heal completely.
Increasing demand for safe and effective pressure ulcers treatment due to increasing prevalence of pressure ulcers, increasing prevalence of chronic disease, and growing geriatric population across the globe is expected to aid in the growth of the global pressure ulcers treatment market over the forecast period. For instance, in November 2021, Sanara MedTech Inc. announced the commercial launch of two new innovative extracellular matrix products (FORTIFY TRGTM Tissue Repair Graft & FORTIFY FLOWABLETM Extracellular Matrix) in partnership with Cook Biotech Inc.
Moreover, in January 2020, ConvaTec Group Plc launched ConvaMax which is the new super absorber wound dressing widely used in the management of highly exuding wounds, including leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, and dehisced surgical wounds.
