ACCELERATING HEALING WHILE GENERATING SAVINGS:
- Heals twice as fast as a neutral dressing and avoids wounds becoming longstanding.
- Is cost- effective.
- Improves patients' quality of life.
UrgoStart is the only wound dressing with demonstrated superiority in wound healing speed: UrgoStart heals wounds twice as fast as a neutral absorbent dressing.
UrgoStart is a soft-adherent foam dressing with TLC-NOSF, comprised of:
- A soft-adherent TLC-NOSF layer combined with an absorbent polyurethane foam pad,
- A vapour permeable outer film.
MODE OF ACTION:
TLC (Technology Lipido-Colloid) combined with NOSF (Nano-Oligo Saccharide Factor) is a patented innovative technology which in contact with wound exudate forms a gel and creates a moist environment enabling the key cells involved in the repair process (fibroblasts, keratinocyrtes, macrophages) to exert their action.
TLC-NOSF interacts with the wound micro-environment of the wound by preventing the detrimental effect of Matrix Metallo Proteases (MMPs) which in excess in chronic wounds creates a continuous degradation of the extra-cellular matrix. TLC-NOSF restores balance in the wound bed so granulation of chronic wounds can occur. UrgoStart thereby promotes faster wound healing.
