Chronic wounds are a global public health concern that demands significant resources from the healthcare system. The incidence of chronic wounds has been growing like a ‘silent epidemic’. The consequences of a wound cane include pain associated with the wound as well as the social, physical, or psychosocial impact of the wound. The right approach to wound management should consider how to reduce the economic burden while lowering morbidity and mortality. Developing new preventive and therapeutic technologies will have significant results, especially in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) where affordability and accessibility to quality healthcare is a challenge.
