Bruin Biometrics team attend EWMA, London 2024

The Bruin Biometrics team were delighted to attend EWMA, 2024 at the Excel Arena, London, UK. EWMA – the European Wound Management Association is the leading expert group in Europe for wound management. They held their annual meeting this year in association with the UK Society of Tissue Viability.

The programme featured a “mixture of new topics, which are important to the European wound community, in addition to topics that have been popular during previous EWMA conferences. The sessions will deal with advancement of education and research in relation to epidemiology, pathology, diagnosis, prevention, and management of wounds.”

Bruin Biometrics focus was, of course, on the pressure ulcer sessions, including:

  • A prospective cohort study exploring the correlation between sub-epidermal moisture measurement and ultrasound, for detecting pressure ulcer development in the deeper tissues by Hannah Wilson from the Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland

We were proud to present two Poster Presentations:

  • Flattening the bullwhip effect of severe pressure ulcers via sub-epidermal moisture (SEM) assessments, Hancock K., et al

  • Evolution of the Science of Sub-Epidermal Moisture Assessment, Hancock K et al

Finally, we were honoured to represent Veronica Pollard and Arlene McNelis from NHA Greater Glasgow and Clyde, presenting their Poster presentation:

Commenting on the EWMA conference Kate Hancock, EVP External Communications said, “ attending conferences such as EWMA and TVS allows us to share the latest science from our research programme with the delegates, it enables discussion and debate which is so important for companies such as Bruin Biometrics”.
