A paraplegic patient with a
longstanding (eight months) pressure sore on his lower spine that required daily
medical/nursing attention. Following the application of this new treatment the
pressure sore was healed in thirty days. The potential savings can be
illustrated as such: The daily cost of care for such a condition requiring
regular nursing or medical attention is estimated to be £115.00 day, as an
outpatient or £233.00 as an inpatient (Source, National Audit Office at

condition that has been present for this length of time cost in the region of
£27,000 - £55,920 per patient.

care to check the progress of the wound, savings thousands of pounds for one
A diabetic patient with an open
wound in his neck as a result of a surgically drained tooth abscess.
Reconstructive surgery was planned for this patient at a cost of £5000, plus a
stay in hospital @ £233.00 a day, estimated to be 10 days @ £2330 plus a further
4 to 8 weeks of outpatient care. The patient used the new treatment dressing
for 14 days by which time the wound was closed. By 21 days, with no extra
nursing attention, the wound was completely healed for a cost of £150 for the
dressing pack and £805.00 in nursing care, a potential saving of 86%.
if patients spend less time in hospital the risk of them acquiring an infection
and all the costs that entail would be significantly reduced. Hospital acquired
infections add, on average, an extra 14 days stay in hospital at a cost of £3262
A diabetic lady with a longstanding

To make the
economics simple we believe that even if a patient spend one less day in
hospital, at a cost of £233 a day, it would pay for the cost of the dressing,
which at first glance seems expensive compared to its rivals in the market.
points are important to bear in mind, firstly, this is not like any other type
of dressing available and secondly, looking at the evidence it would be
considerably more than one day saved in hospital bed stay by this remarkable
technology - it may be more like weeks, saving millions £'s a year across the
An elderly gentleman with
longstanding venous ulcers. These were treated using conventional means and
they remained open, weeping and painful for many months. Below is a letter from
the gentleman after being treated using the new technology.
I have had once more three quite large
Haematomas, larger than the head of a pin. I am pleased to say they have again
healed through the use of MicroDoctor. One of them hurt and was really very
uncomfortable, (it had actually perforated) but good news at the end of the
day. All that remains now is a small tiny black dot soon to dry out and drop
I am very happy to go on T.V. and
explain ( should you agree) and to display the problems I have to endure plus my
history, no problem. I will happily volunteer, as I said I owe you one.
I am (as a non medic but delighted patient)
prepared to sing the praises of the device and to sing the praises of the people
behind it, mainly yourself. It may sound better if someone else blows your
trumpet for you, it is hard earned and it is well deserved.
On a final point I would like to help and
get involved in this because it has quite radically changed my life and I feel I
am one of MicroDoctor's greatest ambassadors. I don't just make it or sell it or
promote it. I don't know if you will ever really
appreciate what you have really done for me.
I look forward to hearing from you and also
in the not too distant future maybe meeting you.
When I first was
introduced to the MicroDoctor, I was under the impression that I would not be
able to play the piano any longer because of the problems in my thumb joints. I
use the MicroDoctor regularly and it has had a remarkable effect. Dr
Chapman-Jones has explained that this is not a cure for my arthritis but it
certainly has enabled me to carry on playing to a level where I can perform in
concerts. After many other treatments I am convinced that it is the MicroDoctor
that has made the difference.

ran at Perth on 23rd April,2003, and finished the race despite having sustained
a serious injury to his near fore which proved to be a cut across 90% of his
suspensory ligament. He was sent immediately to the equine hospital at
Edinburgh, and on 27th May transferred to Kent for treatment and rehabilitation.
He returned to his trainer on 24th July in such fine condition that it was
impossible to detect the injury. He resumed full training almost immediately,
and raced again on 7th December. From injury to return to racing took only 7 1/2
months, which is almost beyond belief. The trainer ‘Mouse’ Morris described the
results as amazing and unbelievable and is very keen to send more horses when
the time comes.
Ciara Gibney MVBMRCVS of O’Byne & Halley, Co. Tipperary reported that ‘ This was
a catastrophic injury and from what I have been told I considered that we would
be lucky to get the horse back to Ireland. On his return I he was completely
sound. I could detect no sign of injury when I scanned him. I was remarkably
