Non-healing wounds are a persistent problem, whether caused by diabetes, poor blood flow, bacterial infection, pressure, or inflammation. In an inpatient or outpatient setting at Peabody, MIST® Therapy helps improve patient outcomes with pain-free treatment and accelerated healing.
Using saline mist to deliver sound waves, the clinically proven MIST® Therapy treatment painlessly penetrates into and below the wound. It gently pushes back against cell walls to break down and reduce bacteria found in all wounds and to “wake” up “stalled” healthy cells to accelerate normal healing.
The goal of our wound care treatment program is to help people with difficult-to-treat wounds heal more quickly through painless, non-contact, low-frequency ultrasound therapy delivered via saline mist.
Treatment goals include:
With single treatment times ranging from 3 to 20 minutes, depending on the size of the wound, the therapy has proven to be time well spent for superior outcomes with challenging types of wounds, including:
