AMS to unveil woundcare products
Dubai, January 10, 2010
Advanced Medical Solutions (AMS), a UK-based developer and manufacturer of advanced wound care and wound closure products, is set to showcase its technology portfolio at the upcoming Arab Health expo in Dubai.
AMS provides a full range of innovative, advanced wound care dressings that includes alginates, foams, hydrocolloids, hydrogels and films and also new anti-microbial silver technology dressings (effective against MRSA and VRE).
At Arab Health, AMS will be showcasing LiquiBand Optima, a pioneering emergency room (ER) wound closure product that was awarded the Medical Design Excellence Award in 2009.
The product is being sold in over 20 countries with its ER range being used to close thousands of emergency and traumatic wounds per month, said a top official.
The LiquiBand range also includes a number of wound closure devices that are specifically designed to close surgical wounds within the operating theatre environment, said Dr Nick Frampton, vice president sales and marketing.
'AMS can provide local companies a range of cost-effective private labelled advanced woundcare dressings packaged to individual customer specifications and regulatory requirements,' he added.
AMS is also a leader in the development and marketing of topical skin adhesives, sealants and barrier films for use in the ER, operating theatre and extended care environment, he pointed out.
The surgical range of devices have been created to provide strong, flexible and fast wound closure using dual tip applicators that allow the clinician to both close the wound and protect it using a liquid barrier; helping to prevent the risk of infection whilst ensuring strong wound closure, Dr Nick explained.
'To compliment the topical wound closure range there are two liquid barrier products; LiquiShield that helps to prevent the breakdown of friable skin and LiquiSeal which is a liquid bandage designed for use over sutures or staples to reduce the risk of potential infection.'
“As a leader in innovative medical technology products, we are focused on further expanding the business within the Middle Eastern markets and will be showcasing our unique range of woundcare and wound closure products at Arab Health in 2010,' he added.
Arab Health 2010, the largest healthcare event in the Middle East, will take place at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre from January 25 to 28.-TradeArabia News Service
