Wound Care Q & A

What is wound care?

Wound care is the medical management of non-healing wounds, also called ulcers. No matter the cause, you should seek medical help for your wound, if it fails to start healing within two weeks or hasn’t fully healed after six weeks.

Open wounds increase your risk of infection, affecting the surrounding tissue and requiring more serious medical intervention, such as removal of tissue or even a limb.

Getting early care for your non-healing wound may prevent more severe health complications. 

What is a diabetic foot ulcer assessment?

Sensor Medica Clinic specializes in the prevention and treatment of diabetic foot ulcers. People with diabetes are at higher risk of developing sores on their feet due to nerve damage and poor circulation.

The experienced team at Sensor Medica Clinic offers a diabetic foot ulcer risk assessment. The assessment focuses on the biomechanics of your feet that may lead to ulcer formation.

The experts use the dynamic freeMed platform to perform an ulcer risk evaluation. The diagnostic tool provides:

  • A fall risk assessment
  • Plantar pressure distribution
  • Gait cycle with spatiotemporal measurements
  • Balance testing when standing and walking
  • Prosthesis alignment rehabilitation

The team uses the information gathered to develop a treatment plan to correct any biomechanical issue in your feet that may increase your risk of developing an ulcer.

What happens during a wound care evaluation?

During your wound care evaluation, your provider asks detailed questions about your wound to understand the cause and prior treatment. They also review your medical history and perform a physical exam.

The team then carefully examines your wound to assess the size, location, and tissue health -- and may take tissue samples to confirm or rule out an infection. 

What are some wound care treatments?

The team develops individualized treatment plans for the management of your wound. Your treatment plan may include:

  • Antibiotics to treat any infection
  • Wound cleaning
  • Removal of dead tissue
  • Regenerative medicine techniques to accelerate ulcer healing
  • Careful wound dressing

The wound care specialists at Sensor Medica Clinic have you return to the office regularly to continue treatment and monitor your wound.
