Accel-Heal® is a medical device that promotes and stimulates healing in leg ulcers through the use of electroceutical energy.

Developed and designed with ease of clinical application and patient comfort in mind, Accel-Heal® delivers a sequence of pre-programmed, low level and sub-sensory electrical energy through the skin surface. This helps to reduce the inflammation and improve cell migration to the ulcer site resulting in tissue repair.

An Accel-Heal® treatment course consists of six, battery powered 48 hour single use units and electrode pads. The pads should be applied to healthy skin either side of the wound and then connected to the Accel-Heal® unit, during a standard care procedure (dressing change).

Product Features

  • Wearable with each unit measuring 7cm X 4cm X 2cm and can be placed underneath dressings and bandages
