Title:
A new device for the treatment of perineal wounds
Authors:
Steen, Mary; Cooper, Keith
Abstract:
This article describes the design, development and evaluation of a new cooling maternity gel pad for the alleviation of perineal pain. Specific details of laboratory investigations of cooling and warm curves for different gel compositions, microbiological challenge tests and MDSA data are discussed. A risk assessment for the designed established that the new device has a low hazard rating and negligible exposure potential. Women’s opinions of treatment effect are highly significant.
