Electric stimulation for the treatment of chronic wounds has been demonstrated to be of value in many published experimental clinical studies. A new bio-electric dressing, POSiFECT® RD, has recently been introduced that applies bioelectric currents to the chronic wound in a way that mimics those generated by normally healing wounds. The dressing is a self-contained single-use device designed for ease of use. This article briefly reviews the history and use of electric stimulation, describes the POSiFECT®RD dressing and its use in detail and concludes with a consideration of the recent clinical data describing treatment outcome.
