About the Chronic Wound Epidemic
Chronic wounds affect millions of people in the U.S. and the incidence is rising, fueled by an aging population and increasing rates of diseases and conditions such as diabetes, obesity, and the late effects of radiation therapy. Untreated, chronic wounds can lead to diminished quality of life and possibly amputation of the affected limb. The mission of Healogics is to advance wound healing by creating, sharing, and activating wound prevention and care expertise – everywhere we can, for every patient who would benefit, by the best means available.
