We help service providers and wound care companies to evaluate their current medicinal products, devices and services and where appropriate, to introduce new medicinal products, devices, models and techniques. Commercial applications are dispersed across two sectors:

  • Commercial: manufacturers of medicinal products, devices, high technology and basic products
  • Healthcare providers: Local Health Boards, NHS Trusts and Nursing Homes

We have over 25 years’ experience of research in the field of wound healing and can provide dedicated assistance with the development of study-related documentation, and regulatory procedures in the UK.

We have built a worldwide reputation as a trusted and reliable clinical facility. We have been successfully audited by the FDA (US Food & Drug Agency) and the MDA (Medicine Device Agency).
