The end of September saw Sumed attend as a Corporate partner at ‘Wound care in the Noughties’, the Leg Club’s 10th anniversary conference which was held in Worcester.

The Leg Club is a foundation that has been created to relieve suffering from leg ulcers and associated conditions through the implementation of an award winning model that motivates and empowers patients to take ownership of their care in order to alleviate their suffering and reduce the stigma attached to their condition.  It also seeks to advance education in all aspects of leg health amongst suffers, carers, the general public and healthcare professionals.

The first day of the full two day programme saw delegates participating ‘hands on’ at a variety of different workshops including ‘Latest technology in practical ABPI assessments’ and ‘ Compression bandaging in the noughties!’ through to ‘How to set up a Leg Club’.

The second day consisted of a full programme of topical lectures presented by numerous eminent speakers from the industry including Consultant Nurse and Senior Lecturer at Worcester PCT and Worcester University, Jackie Stephen-Haynes.

 With over 150 delegates attending the event, the 10th anniversary of the conference generated the highest number of attendees to date, illustrating just how wide the Leg Club message is spreading!

Sumed is now able to provide the healthcare professional with a single, simple source for silicone scar treatment, by offering a comprehensive sheet and gel range from Ciltech™ 
Offering  substantial cost savings, Ciltech™ Anti-Scar Gel and Ciltech™ Anti-Scar Elastomer Sheet provide the ideal solution for flattening, smoothing and reducing the discolouration associated with keloid or hypertrophic scars following surgery, burns or other traumatic wounds.
Hypertrophic and keloid scars have been successfully diminished by either silicone sheet or silicone gel treatment since the 1980s and it is believed that silicone treatment delivers partial occlusion and rehydration of the skin, leading to a reduction of scar size and prominence.

The Ciltech™ range comprises :-

Ciltech™ Anti-Scar Gel

Available in 15g or 60g packs and comprises a self-drying silicone based product which, when applied as a thin layer, will dry within about 5 minutes to form a transparent semi-occlusive film.

Ciltech™ Anti-Scar Elastomer Sheet

Available in 10cm x 20cm, 15cm x 15cm and 10cm x 10cm sheets, which can be cut to size – a self-adhesive conformable silicone sheet backed by a semi-permeable polyurethane film.

The Ciltech™ products have been available on drug tariff since  November 2008 and are rapidly gaining widespread usage within Burns and Plastics departments as well as Hand therapy units.
