There is a need to transform lives
Feedback from users of our products.
"It's an excellent dressing. It's so easy you can do it yourself. It gives you the independence to look after yourself".
"The skin can within a short period of time be significantly damaged due to wound exudate. And exudate is highly painful. This means that absorption of exudate is the most essential for me as a patient"
"Now that the wound is healing, my quality of life has increased, and my wife can plan her work and free time as well"
"You have to make the best of every situation. If this makes life easier then you should be pleased"
We aim to transform practice through Simplification
There are no standardised pathways for wound care treatment - this means that patients are subject to unwarranted variation.

ONPOS is the leading Non-Prescription Ordering Service in the UK. Coloplast has over 15 years experience of implementing this system across 90 NHS organisations.
Managing the Gap
Conventional foam dressings leave a gap between the dressing and the wound bed, which may increase the risk of exudate pooling 1, 2
Gaps create space for exudate pooling, which may lead to bacterial growth and the risk of infection.

Recent evidence suggests that up to 50% of patients are eligible for inclusion on a Self-care pathway optimising nursing resource management1
