Sky Medical Technology attends EWMA 2024

Earlier this month we exhibited at the 34th European Wound Management Association (EWMA) conference, hosted at the ExCel centre in London. The conference, in collaboration with the Society of Tissue Viability (SoTV), saw 165 exhibitors and 4995 participants whilst featuring 733 e-posters and 699 presentations1

The theme of this year’s conference was ‘collaborative and sustainable wound care: making everyone’s contribution count’.

It is more important than ever for there to be innovative solutions to current standards of care can speed up patient recovery times and empower patients to better self-manage their conditions independently at home.  Renowned conferences like EWMA play an important role in building a healthier sustainable future for wound care globally by bringing together leading medical device manufacturers, clinicians, investors, and healthcare professionals. As a science led medical device company ourselves, we prioritize in improving health outcomes in patients with minimal environmental impact.

At our stand, our Director of Wound Therapy Fiona Young and our Firstkind team were on hand to talk in detail about the geko™ device and have our visitors experience for themselves ‘that healing feeling’.

One the event’s highlight was Tissue Viability Nurse, Agnes Collarte, presenting her e-poster ’Evaluating a neuromuscular electrostimulation (NMES) device as part of the treatment pathway for patients with non-healing venous leg ulcers – a case series’. The presentation delivered with great impact the game changing benefits of the geko™ device for pain reduction2 and accelerated healing3 in hard to heal chronic wounds.

A second highlight, our Head of Clinical Studies, Kieron Day Ph.D., presented a novel study metric – Percentage Area Reduction (PAR) – measured over a 4-week period, as a surrogate end point, and how the addition of the geko™ device significantly increased the PAR rate compared to compression therapy alone in the same cohort in our recently published study.

We very much look forward to next year’s conference in Barcelona, Spain. Our next event will be Wounds UK, in Harrogate in November.
