In my own words
23 year old Stella's talks about using Debrisoft on her leg ucler.
My name is Stella (not my real name) and I would like to share my story¹ of how a simple, but effective, medical device helped to heal my leg ulcer and facilitated my early discharge back home to my family.
For me, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome meant that dressings and bandages were just too painful. I am only twenty three, and the fact that my skin and leg reacted and functioned in a different way to that of a normal limb, made treatment very difficult.
I was given a sample of Debrisoft by my nurse. I took it out of the packaging and spent some time just touching it and trying to understand how it could be useful to me.
For me Debrisoft was soft on my sensitive skin, quick and easy to use and I was in control of the pressure applied and could use it independently.
The most important thing in all of this was that this little pad saved my leg!”
