Southwest Technologies, Inc., brings innovative technologies and solutions to the wound care industry

According to Robert Lange, the tagline of Southwest Technologies, Inc. (SWT), isn’t meaningless lip service. Treating the World Well is a statement that drives company philosophy and the actions of its employees.

“We truly want to help caregivers heal patients,” says Lange, National Accounts Manager. “We are always patient-centered, which is why we enjoy being a part of the Wild on Wounds annual conference and sharing our products with such enthusiastic and knowledgeable attendees.”

Lange and other SWT educators will be on-site at the 2015 WOW National Conference in Las Vegas to answer questions, perform hands-on product demonstrations, offer training and product sample give-aways. Located at Booth #434, visitors will have the opportunity to learn about the newest collagen research, and have access to new assessment tools that have been developed to better support practices and make wound care easier.

“As most people in our industry will tell you, evidence-based treatment is in the forefront of wound-care trends,” says Lange. “Caregivers will change the way they approach treatment, and will greater emphasize proven methods over inexpensive solutions in order to gain better results.”

Lange says the SWT products that include Elasto-gel™, Gold Dust®, Stimulen® and NectaCare® will positively support the continuum of care for the patient and care-giver throughout all healthcare settings.  He says the company’s proven technologies backed by evidence-based research make care plans less cumbersome. “Our products are easy to use, help support positive outcomes, and are truly cost-effective,” he says. “They meet the needs of the patient, caregivers and wound characteristics, including types and etiologies.”

Lange, who has been trained and certified as a Wound Care Market Specialist (CWCMS®) by the Wound Care Education Institute®, says the WOW conference is really special. “It’s the perfect combination of high energy and knowledge-based programming.” He says that when attendees truly want to learn and interact with exhibitors, the better the experience is for everyone.

“The open forum allows for attendees to get all their questions answered, and to learn more about specific topics that are so crucial in our industry,” Lange says. This will be SWT’s fifth WOW Conference.
