SAWC Spring - A re-cap

Wound Care was in the air with 2,000+ wound care professionals in attendance, 200+ exhibiting companies and 70+ educational sessions.


Wound Zoom attended it’s first ever Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (“SAWC”) this past weekend, April 19th -22nd, in Atlanta, Georgia at the World Congress Center.

We had three busy days of exhibiting with a steady flow of booth visitors. People were excited about the ease, simplicity and speed of Wound Zoom; often bringing back their friends and colleagues to let us show off our new device. From long term care, to VA’s, to wound researchers we saw a strong response from people who thought that Wound Zoom could fit into their everyday practice. The feedback was positive with most people commenting on how fast one can create a patient record with photos and measurements. The universal PDF format of the reports, which can be appended to electronic medical records, was also a crowd favorite. As well as the fact that the device doesn’t require any additional software to obtain records but just a USB cable. All comments were heard and appreciated: from working with EMR companies to provide data interchange, which we are committed to supporting, to providing a .CSV output for researchers.


In addition to the exhibit hall and educational sessions there were also activities to raise money for wound care charities. Attendees at the SAWC Walk for Wellness connected with other wound care professionals and helped raise money for the AAWC Global Alliance Program with every step they took.


The Wound Zoom team was up bright and early Saturday morning to help out at the Bates-Jensen Wound REACH Foundation’s OUCH! race in beautiful Centennial Olympic Park. The foundation, which is committed to improving wound care globally by increasing public awareness, expanding knowledge, enhancing care and supporting research, did a fantastic job of organizing the event. We had over 70 runners and walkers join us for the race and post-race refreshments.

We value the connections that we made at SAWC and look forward to working with our new acquaintances in the future. The entire Wound Zoom team would like to thank the staff at the Georgia World Congress Center for all their hard work, the organizers of SAWC and mostly importantly, the attendees, who make this conference what it is.
