The objective of this research service is to evaluate the U.S. advanced wound management market in 2010. Traditional approaches to wound management involved using standard gauzes, plaster, and basic bandages to help keep a wound clean and dry. However, clinical research in the late 20th Century indicated that maintaining a moist environment actually accelerated the healing process. This research service identifies major industry challenges, market drivers and restraints, and market and technology trends for existing and emerging participants. It also provides revenue forecasts and market analysis from 2007 to 2017, with 2010 as the base year.
