Non-healing wounds leads to large suffering and are an enormous burden to the healthcare system. In a typical hospital setting, 25-40% of all beds are occupied by patients with wounds, and more than half of the health care resources in the outpatient setting are spent on wound treatment. HEALiX brings together clinical and industrial wound care experts and leading academic researchers to address this huge medical and societal problem.
Our aim is to develop a new generation of advanced but affordable multifunctional wound dressing materials that will give clinicians new and better means to go beyond wound management and instead focus on wound healing.
Project partners are ArgusEye Sensor Solutions, Linköping University, Luleå University of Technology, Center for Disaster Medicine and Traumatology, S2 Medical and Örebro University.
Project HEALiX is funded by Stiftelsen för Strategisk Forskning (SSF) Med-X Program.
