MTG5 MIST Therapy system for the promotion of wound healing in chronic and acute wounds: understanding NICE guidance

NICE has assessed the MIST Therapy system to help the NHS decide whether to use this product.

The MIST Therapy system delivers ultrasound to wounds through a continuous saline mist with the aim of promoting wound healing. NICE has said that, although there is some evidence to support this, at the moment the quality of that evidence isn’t quite good enough to recommend its routine use in the NHS. NICE has recommended more research comparing the healing of wounds treated with the MIST Therapy system and those treated with standard care.
