EZqure Device Therapy

The Unmet Needs in Chronic Wound Care

Chronic, non-healing wounds (or ulcers) are defined as those that fail to heal with "standard therapy" in an orderly and timely manner. In many cases, these wounds can last for years with no improvement. Such wounds are prevalent in people with diabetes and those with vascular problems (such as in arteries and veins). If untreated or unimproved they can cause clinical complications as well as life threatening conditions in severe cases. Consequently, the economic burden on the health sector is huge, and patients have a reduced quality of life.

 

One of the most serious problems with non-healing wounds is worsening of the condition and repeated infections, which lead to the need for leg amputation. An amputation that does not guarantee the recovery of the stump. There is no doubt that leg amputation severely impairs the patient's ability to move and quality of life, and may lead to additional and even more severe medical problems. Amputation of a leg must be a solution only in dire straits, and should not be performed before everything else has been tried.

With the trend towards early hospital discharge, treatment of patients with chronic wounds becomes more common at home.  

 

Therefore, medical practitioners need an alternative or adjunct therapy to existing treatment modalities to overcome the challenge of chronic wound treatment and healing. These unmet needs must be addressed by clinically approved home care modalities that are easy to use and cost effective.

EZqure's BeST Solution:

  • The EZqure Device is a clinically approved non-invasive, painless and easy to use electrotherapy.

  • The EZqure Device is easily applied by the caregiver or patient in the hospital or clinic setting and in home care.

  • The EZqure Device can accelerate healing with rapid wound closure.
    By enabling reduced hospitalization time and effective treatment at home, the EZqure Device offers an affordable and cost effective solution for the patient and the health system alike.

 

By causing wounds to respond to stimulating signals, the EZqure Device boosts the body’s naturally occurring electrical currents to stimulate the wound healing process of:

  • Diabetic Wounds

  • Vascular (Arterial or Venous) Leg Ulcers

  • Pressure (Decubitus) Wounds

  • Other Ulcers / Wounds, which are resistance to standard or more complex treatments

 

The EZqure Device is the only electrotherapy which has been approved for the treatment of chronic wounds in a Randomized Placebo Controlled Trial – RCT.
