This year EPUAP attracted more visitors than ever.
With a total of 570 people registered and associated 97 exhibitors participating the EPUAP Executive Board could not have wished for a better attendance.
The program was filled with interesting lectures mixed with time for reflection, making new contacts and booth visits.
The welcome reception was held in Stockholm City Hall and the Blue Hall and everyone had the opportunity to visit the beautiful Golden Hall. A very popular feature during EPUAP.
We were very happy after three intense exhibition days and are now looking forward to the next EPUAP meeting in Gent, Belgium, September 16-18, 2015.

NPWT Wound Filler
At EWMA in Copenhagen, ABIGO launched Sorbact® NPWT Wound Filler. Product development truly driven by the market.
When a lot of cases was coming in from all corners of the world where Sorbact® was being used as a wound filler in NPWT treatment, ABIGO realized that we needed to make a product available.
Cooperating with some of the world leading experts in the field of NPWT, ABIGO this year at EWMA released Sorbact® NPWT Wound Filler for the European market.
The main advantages against foam fillers is that Sorbact® has limited tissue ingrowth for easy and painless removal. In addition it is easy to line and adapt to complex wound cavities. The main advantage compared to gauze is the great liquid handling capacity of Sorbact®.
Please download the Sorbact® NPWT folder to learn more. You find it under products.
