OUR MISSION

Chronic wounds affect 1 in 20 Singaporeans and require long-term medical care with advanced wounds sometimes resulting in limb amputation.

Our mission is to provide end-to-end wound care solutions that take patients from chronic to closure. ​

Cuprina Wound Care Solutions seeks to advance treatment options and alleviate patient suffering for an improved quality of life. We are driven to develop cost-conscious products with high clinical efficacy rates for more effective, rapid wound closure.​

The 3 Phases of Wound Healing

Screenshot 2022-05-24 at 9.40.02 PM.png

Phase 1  ​

Inflammation​

Phase 2 ​

Proliferation​

Phase 3 ​

Maturation​

Healing process triggered, immune system works to prevent infection​

New tissue and blood vessels begin to form​

Scar tissue forms, wound closes​

Wounds typically undergo three phases of healing: Inflammation, Proliferation, and Maturation.


Each phase requires careful management and different interventions to encourage and optimise wound repair. ​

Cuprina develops products tailored to each phase to ensure effective wound closure. ​​

OUR PRODUCTS

MEDIFLY 

Our MEDIFLY products are bio-dressings made of live, medical-grade maggots. The maggot species we use are Lucilia cuprina and contain antimicrobial properties that make them ideal for cleaning wound beds and ridding them of pathogens. 
We offer two MEDIFLY product variations, Free Range and Baggots, to address different types of wound bed.
