Treat Leg Wounds Gratuitous Can Cause Sore

Do not underestimate the leg wound. Especially for patients with diabetes, wound management is very noteworthy. If treated carelessly can cause inflammation and can even make a leg amputated.

According to medical experts Australia, care for and manage the twists are a major clinical challenge of the 21st century. By using leading edge science, tens of thousands of diabetic patients in Indonesia can be helped.

Biochemical and biomedical expert Professor Helen Edwards and Professor Zee Upton said Indonesia has the fourth largest population of diabetics in the world. Meanwhile diabetic foot inflammation affects nearly 25 percent of patients with diabetes that causes 85 percent of all diabetic amputations. Such written statement delivered at the Australian Embassy detikHealth, Wednesday (02/20/2013).

Social and economic impacts arise as a result of inflammation of the foot in diabetic patients. Because the complaint was increasing the number of hospitalizations and cost of care. Because of stay in the hospital and need assistance the family, then the ability of the patient and her family declined.

Embassy of Australia held a seminar on Wound Management Innovation: Developing Technology, Equipment and Therapeutics and Clinical Applications expect to contribute to the development of wound management practices are getting better. In addition, these activities are expected to be able to strengthen research cooperation with Australia.

Embassy of Australia assessing research in wound healing and tissue cells are still relatively underdeveloped. It is also not apply modern biotechnology approaches and innovative biomaterials, or evidence-based clinical practice.

The seminar was attended by biochemists and biomedical, Professor Helen Edwards and Professor Zee Upton. Both are experienced in the management of the wound, where Professor Upton has done research on the biological basis of wound healing. While Professor Edwards gained international recognition for his work in the field of aging, chronic illness, and injury management.

Recently, they also established the Research Center for Wound Management Innovation at the Queensland University of Technology. Projects valued at A $ 110 million worth of these activities focus on the development of therapeutics, diagnostics and clinical interventions are effective.
