For well-dressed wounds

The true cost of wound care

86% of the total cost of wound care results from managing infections, maceration, pain and anxiety, delayed healing, and the additional nursing and hospital resources these complications consume.1 Only 14% is from dressing acquisition.1

A premium-quality range can minimise complications and the larger cost of overall wound care. But can it answer your concerns about acquisition costs, too?

Well-dressed, on a budget

The real value of a quality wound care product is seeing a patient quickly respond to treatment and discharged from care early.

With a wound care range designed to achieve best outcomes, at the right price, Mölnlycke Health Care helps you achieve this at a lower total treatment cost than competitors.2
