75 year old male (venous leg ulcers)

“This device, the fact that it can check for the bacteria or an infection, is very helpful we’ve been struggling with ongoing infections on the left leg, and this way we can see right away if something is growing or starting then we can react to it, so I think it would have been helpful to have that all along, that type of device.”

Do you see utility of the device being put into most wound care clinics?
“Oh yes, because then {the clinician} could confirm what type of dressing would be needed. She put on a topical antimicrobial; we can see that it is working”.
