A wide variety of additional therapeutic methods are being evaluated for the treatment of chronic wounds, specifically for pressure injury management. [135] These include electrotherapy, [136, 137] application of growth factors, [138, 139, 140, 62] and preventive use of free radical scavengers and special drug delivery systems. [141, 142, 143]
