Current in-Use Advanced Wound Dressings

Case Studies Compared Alginate, Hydrocolloid, Film, Foam, and Surgical Dressings

Atlanta, GA, February 22, 2013 --(PR.com)-- MediPurpose(tm), a manufacturer and master distributor of
medical products, today published a report that revealed findings from recent clinical evaluations
representative of its MediPlus(tm) Advanced Wound Care products.

According to the evidence report, MediPlus wound dressings performed at or above the same level as
current dressings being used in nursing homes, demonstrating evidence of MediPlus' product
efficacy.†

"A Case Study of Product Performance From Two Nursing Homes" compared overall clinical
performance characteristics of six MediPlus wound dressing categories to current in-use advanced wound
care dressings in the alternate site. The wound dressing categories included:

* MediPlus(tm) Alginates
* MediPlus(tm) Hydrocolloids
* MediPlus(tm) Hydrocolloid Foam
* MediPlus(tm) Super Foams
* MediPlus(tm) Surgical Composites
* MediPlus(tm) Transparent PU Films

Key performance characteristics included:

* Edge lift
* Wear time
* Conformability
* Ease of application
* Comfort and ease of removal
* Absorbance and exudate management

"The evaluation of specific product characteristics that drive product selection by the end-user is a key
factor in demonstrating MediPlus' overall quality and value," said MediPurpose's Advanced Wound Care
Marketing Manager Valerie Johnson. "With the primary goal of performance equivalency being met, this
portfolio of wound dressings has become the basis of the new Value Plus Program now being offered by
MediPurpose."

extend the cost savings to their customers -- reducing their spending and improving their overall budget
allocation.

"Advanced wound care products typically consume a major portion of the healthcare-purchasing budget,"
said Johnson. "While the cost of advanced wound dressings is derived in greater part from overhead costs
such as corporate overhead, MediPurpose is a virtual company structured to eliminate acquisition costs so
that savings can be passed on to both the supplier and end-user."
