23 Contraction reduces the size of the wound and, thus, reduces the amount of ECM needed to fi ll the wound24 and facilitates re-epithelialisation by reducing the distance which migrating keratinocytes must travel. 7 Maturation and remodelling Maturation and remodelling of the collagen into an organised and wellmannered network is the fi nal stage of the healing process (from day 8 up to 2 years). If this is compromised, then the wound’s strength will be greatly affected. On the other hand, excessive collagen synthesis can lead to the formation of a hypertrophic scar or keloid.

The apparatus should withstand sterilisation or disinfection. • The apparatus should permit analysis of wound fluid that has been in contact with the dressing to measure changes in ionic composition or changes in concentration of solutes such as proteins caused by selective absorbtion by the dressing. • The apparatus should permit microbiological examination of the local environment during the course of the test. 2 The Wrap rig. • The test equipment should allow the pressure beneath the dressing to be varied if this is considered desirable.
