The wound model The Wrap rig model consists of a two-part stainless-steel plate (the ‘wound bed’), mounted on a Perspex table (Fig. 2). An electronically controlled heating mat beneath the steel plate keeps the plate and test sample under examination within a narrow temperature band. The central section of the plate is milled from solid stainless steel and includes a shallow circular recess bearing two ports on opposite ends of a 15-mm-long shallow channel. An inlet hole 3 mm in diameter and a outlet hole 7 mm in diameter permit the introduction and unimpaired exit of test solution.

4 Non-surgical innovations Vacuum assisted closure Vacuum-assisted closure (VAC) therapy entails placing an open-cell foam dressing into the wound cavity and applying a controlled subatmospheric pressure. This produces negative pressure in the wound, leading to improved blood flow and oxygenation. It also helps in removing excessive fluid and slough. 32 This stimulates granulation tissue formation, wound contraction and early closure of wound. © 2009 Woodhead Publishing Limited 16 Advanced textiles for wound care Intermittent pneumatic compression This is an effective treatment for chronic ulcers on legs with severe oedema.
