Help for Heel Sores in Horses at Ruukki Nature and Horse Center with the Led Future Wound Care Device

The Led Future WCD wound care device has been actively used at the Ruukki Nature and Horse Center, which belongs to the Brahe Educational Consortium. The residents of the horse center regularly suffer from heel sores, small wounds/abrasions, and occasionally, heel scratches. (Heel scratches are a skin inflammation located in the rear of the horse, also known as mud fever or greasy heel. In heel scratches, bacteria can penetrate through the softened skin of the heel due to moisture, causing an inflammation that is often painful and difficult to treat).

"In my opinion, wounds and heel sores have clearly healed faster with the device, and the horses have been very willing to be treated with it," says stable manager Hanna Niemi.

Here are two examples, both treated with the device for 6 days. The first picture shows a heel sore.

In the second, there is a picture of a wound on the buttock. Both have started to heal without inflammation.

Many thanks on behalf of Led Future to the Brahe horse and nature center for the good before and after pictures.
