Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary objective of this study is to investigate the effect of sachet S reduction on local soft tissue edema (excessive interstitial fluid to a maximum 3cm depth) in pressure ulcers. [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To investigate the effect of sachet S reduction on local soft tissue edema in pressure ulcers and the degree to which sachet S influences the wound surface bioburden qualitatively and quantitatively.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The secondary objectives are to further investigate whether sorbion sachet s [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Generates changes in subjective parameters Generates changes in wound size Leads to clinician satisfaction and patient compliance with sachet s
