We’re excited to announce that LifeScience PLUS will be at the 21st edition of the interdisciplinary Diabetic Foot Conference on October 21-23, 2021, which will be held in San Francisco at the Marriot Marquis Conference Hotel. It will also be possible to attend virtually – as the program will be livestreamed.

You’ll find us at booth #9, featuring our BloodSTOP® iX Advanced Hemostat with WoundHEAL®. BloodSTOP iX is a clinically proven hemostatic dressing and wound healing matrix that provides rapid hemorrhage control, reducing blood loss. It turns into a gel upon contact with blood or exudates, seals the wound to prevent contamination, and provides a moist wound environment for proliferation of new tissue.

BloodSTOP iX addresses the issue of long healing time in wounds such as diabetic foot ulcers, which is one of the reasons for higher risk of amputations. The median time to healing for diabetic foot ulcers without surgery is usually 84 days1, compared to only 21 days for skin regeneration after application of BloodSTOP iX.

We would like to hear your clinical expertise in dealing with chronic wound care. Your feedback and product experience will greatly help us improve our products.

Hoping to see you in the Diabetic Foot Conference this October!
