MIST Therapy system for the promotion of wound healing in chronic and acute wounds (MTG5)
Fast, easy summary view of NICE guidance on 'pressure ulcer management'
NICE has developed medical technology guidance on the MIST Therapy system.
NICE medical technology guidance addresses specific technologies notified to NICE by manufacturers. The ‘case for adoption’ recommendations are based on the claimed advantages of introducing the specific technology compared with current management of the condition. This ‘case’ is reviewed against the evidence submitted and expert advice. The medical technology guidance on the MIST Therapy system recommends further research. This recommendation is not intended to preclude the use of the technology in the NHS but to identify further evidence which, after evaluation, could support a recommendation for wider adoption.
NICE has said that, although there is some evidence that the MIST Therapy system promotes wound healing, at the moment the quality of that evidence isn’t quite good enough to recommend its routine use in the NHS. NICE has recommended more research comparing the healing of wounds treated with the MIST Therapy system and those treated with standard care.
