"We are excited about CellerateRX®'s introduction to the South African market," stated Cathy Bradshaw, President of Wound Care Innovations, a subsidiary of Wound Management Technologies. "According to the World Diabetes Foundation, the estimated number of people with diabetes in South Africa is approximately 840,000, with a projected increase to 1.3 million in the next few years. Statistics show that around 15% of these people will develop a diabetic foot ulcer at some point in their lives. We believe that CellerateRX® can have an enormous impact in the management of the related wounds."
