Recommendations for using Accel‑Heal®
Accel‑Heal® has been designed and developed with ease of application and patient comfort in mind. It is wearable with each unit measuring at 7cm X 4cm X 2cm and can be placed underneath dressings or bandages, enabling patients to continue with everyday activities.
It is recommended that Accel‑Heal® is used on leg ulcers that will comfortably fit under a 10cm X 10cm dressing and that have not progressed satisfactorily after 6 weeks of treatment.
How to use Accel‑Heal®
The Accel‑Heal® 12 day treatment course consists of six 48 hour single use units and connected electrode pads. The electrode pads are applied to healthy skin either side of the wound and then connected to the Accel‑Heal® unit.
The unit is then activated using a simple on/off switch, tucked into the external dressing and left to work for 48 hours. Once the 48 hour treatment has finished, the unit will automatically turn itself off. A new unit should then be attached to the electrodes with the used unit disposed of safely. The units should be applied consecutively during the 12 day treatment course.
For more information on the application of Accel‑Heal® please see instructional guide.
