New Report Shows MediPlus Performs at Same Level as Current In-Use Advanced Wound Dressings

Case Studies Compared Alginate, Hydrocolloid, Film, Foam, and Surgical Dressings
Feb. 21, 2013 - PRLog -- ATLANTA – MediPurpose™, a manufacturer and master distributor of medical products, today published a report that revealed findings from recent clinical evaluations representative of its MediPlus™ Advanced Wound Care products.

According to the evidence report, MediPlus wound dressings performed at or above the same level as current dressings being used in nursing homes, demonstrating evidence of MediPlus’ product efficacy.†

A Case Study of Product Performance From Two Nursing Homes compared overall clinical performance characteristics of six MediPlus wound dressing categories to current in-use advanced wound care dressings in the alternate site. The wound dressing categories included:

• MediPlus™ Alginates
• MediPlus™ Hydrocolloids
• MediPlus™ Hydrocolloid Foam
• MediPlus™ Super Foams
• MediPlus™ Surgical Composites
• MediPlus™ Transparent PU Films

Key performance characteristics included:

• Edge lift
• Wear time
• Conformability
• Ease of application
• Comfort and ease of removal
• Absorbance and exudate management

“The evaluation of specific product characteristics that drive product selection by the end-user is a key factor in demonstrating MediPlus’ overall quality and value,” said MediPurpose’s Advanced Wound Care Marketing Manager Valerie Johnson. “With the primary goal of performance equivalency being met, this portfolio of wound dressings has become the basis of the new Value Plus Program now being offered by MediPurpose.”

About MediPlus Advanced Wound Care
MediPurpose introduced the MediPlus Advanced Wound Care product portfolio in March 2011. The MediPlus product line is positioned to provide high-quality products at prices that allow suppliers to extend the cost savings to their customers—reducing their spending and improving their overall budget allocation.

“Advanced wound care products typically consume a major portion of the healthcare-purchasing budget,” said Johnson. “While the cost of advanced wound dressings is derived in greater part from overhead costs such as corporate overhead, MediPurpose is a virtual company structured to eliminate acquisition costs so that savings can be passed on to both the supplier and end-user.”
