Burns

“The average cost to the NHS for a major burn is £168,155”

(International Burns Injury Database, 2015)

What are the problems we are facing?

Global Burden of Disease report estimated that approximately 11 million people per year had burn injuries that were sufficient to seek medical attention—placing burn injury as the fourth most common substantial injury.

Clinically, burns injuries are often unique and many heal differently, leaving problems with;

  • Fluid loss
  • Oedema – increasing risk of infection
  • Scarring
  • Tissue mobility and function

Based on a recent estimate, 5% of the significant trauma workload in England and Wales is a result of burn injury (Kalson et al. 2015).

What can we do?

Our Burns therapy solution has been developed with leading centres in the UK and internationally to allow you to provide a more individualised service to burn trauma patients. Taking some of the leading technologies we can help you deliver;

  • A customised, objective, evidence based rehabilitation service
  • Advanced scar management treatments
  • An Innovative oedema management treatment
  • Fluid analysis and management

Using the BTE Primus RS we can objectively test and functionally rehab our burns patients in a simple, controlled, evidence based format. We can customise your testing and treatment to replicate different real-life scenarios to support the patient’s journey back to activities of daily living (ADLs).

Applying LymphaTouch allows us to treat oedema and scar restrictions in a comfortable and innovative approach. We work with the body’s systems to improve tissue healing and function to aid a patient’s return to ADLs.

Using Bioimpedence Spectroscopy (BIS), we can manage and monitor a burns patients fluid levels to manage ongoing circulatory and fluid balance assessment.

 

How does it help me?

With the Primus we can be more objective with our assessments and rehabilitation. We can;

  • Showcase the success of our rehabilitation
  • Set patient specific goals
  • Increase patient engagement
  • Provide controlled functional rehabilitation
  • All specific to the patients’ needs

Our scar and oedema management package allows you to;

  • Approach complex cases with proven methods for treating excess oedema and scar restrictions
  • Remove the strain on the clinician’s hands
  • Improve clinical outcome

Using BIS, we can monitor at regular intervals;

  • Total body water
  • Intracellular Fluid
  • Extracellular fluid
Objective Assessment and Rehabilitation

BTE PrimusRS

  • Isometric and Isotonic testing and rehab
  • CPM – Continuous passive motion capability
  • Isokinetic testing and rehab
  • Replicate any movement or functional activity e.g. steering, lifting,
  • Single joint and multiple joint testing
  • Live data feedback

Using the Primus as part of “Comprehensive Hand therapy aided restoration of adequate sensation and strength for functional use of the replanted hand.” (Sturm et. al. 2014)

Scar and Oedema Management

LymphaTouch

  • Dilate lymphatic capillaries to encourage lymphatic drainage
  • Lifts and expands the tissue, instead of push and compress
  • Vertical stretching of fascia
  • Provide torsional forces on the tissue by twisting
  • Results are often instantly measurable

“LymphaTouch negative pressure technique treats oedema more effectively than traditional manual lymph drainage therapy. It caused larger decreases in the oedematous volume of muscle tissue (7%) and in tissue stiffness (9.2%).” (Vuorinen et. al. 2013)

Fluid Analysis

SOZOPro

  • Measures total body water, intra and extracellular fluid
  • Direct measure of body fluid levels
  • Quick, non-invasive and painless measurement
  • Research grade data
  • Track and trend data to manage a patient easier
