BioBag – innovation of an old concept
BioBag is both a clinically and cost effective way for clinicians to treat non-healing wounds such as pressure ulcers, diabetic ulcers, surgical wounds, traumatic wounds and venous stasis ulcers. BioBag contains all the known benefits of Larval Therapy in a quick and easy-to-use contained dressing. Ease of application, rapid debridement times, and economical product costs make BioBag an efficient debridement solution for all non-healing wounds.
Each of the five available sizes in the BioBag product range (BB50, BB100, BB200, BB300 and BB400) have been awarded the contract under Schedule 65 II A – Medical Equipment and Supplies.
BioMonde is dedicated to improving outcomes of non-healing wounds within the Veterans Affairs Health System. BioMonde is currently sponsoring a 140 patient clinical trial through the Center of Innovation on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (CINDRR) at the Malcom Randall VA Medical Center in Gainesville, Florida. This outpatient study compares the removal of bacterial biofilm in sharp debridement (control) versus BioBag in non-healing diabetic foot ulcers and leg ulcers.
