Making the Case: Debrisoft

1 December 2015

The Debrisoft monofilament debridement pad (Activa Healthcare) is a sterile, single-use pad for use on adults and children to remove devitalised tissue, debris, and hyperkeratotic skin in or around acute or chronic wounds and affecting the skin more widely.

This Making the Case presents the conclusions from the NICE medical technology appraisal (2014), which showed that it offers significant time-savings, it is quick to use (2-4 minutes per session) and made lead to faster debridement and healing.

Overall, when compared to other methods, this will result in fewer nurse visits, saving on nursing time and a significant cost reduction.
