Medical Grade Honey Wound Care Products Now Available Online

New online portal provides direct access to patients for faster, better healing

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ManukaMed, a global leader in the scientific development of medical grade honey wound care products, has launched an e-commerce store to help clinicians and patients gain easier access to its high potency products for the healing of chronic wounds. ManukaMed is among the first to offer superior quality medical grade honey-impregnated wound dressings directly to consumers, allowing them to easily purchase products through its online store.

"Physicians and nurse specialists who have used our products on patients – even those with chronic, non-healing wounds – report strong clinical efficacy and high levels of patient satisfaction and preference," explains Jim Lodigiani, CEO of ManukaMed. "But access to our products once the patient is discharged from the hospital, long-term care environment or freestanding wound center can be a challenge.

"Making both our prescription and over-the-counter products available for sale over the internet allows patients to continue – and complete – their healing at home."

More than 7 million Americans suffer from chronic wounds, which are often tied to health problems like diabetes, obesity and vascular disease. Surgical incisions, traumatic burns and skin breakdown caused by prolonged hospitalization or convalescence can also result in slow or non-healing wounds.

ManukaMed's medical grade honey wound care products help optimize the healing process by lowering the pH level and providing a moist environment, critical factors in the clinical management of the wound bed. ManukaMed products have proven faster, better healing results in clinical trials in both the U.S. and abroad.* Their medical grade dressing products have received FDA 510K clearance and several have been assigned HCPCS fixed fee coding for Medicare reimbursement.

"Online availability of ManukaMed products is a game changer for patients and clinicians alike," said Dr. Vipul R. Dev, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Medical Director, Wound Care Center in Bakersfield, California.  "We consistently see strong clinical outcomes from ManukaMed products for our patients receiving care in the clinic setting. But having the products shipped directly to the home will help increase patient compliance and reduce frustrations, and ultimately, support good wound management."

ManukaMed manufactures a wide range of manuka honey products including wound dressings of multiple sizes, gels, rope and wraps, has seen high adoption rates since establishing its headquarters in the United States in 2012. Its parent company, Watson & Son, is based in New Zealand.
