Individualising wound care research: The Woundcare for Epidermolysis Bullosa ProjectThe authors report The Woundcare for Epidermolysis Bullosa (WEB) Project, which undertook to design dressing retention garments to replace flat and tubular bandages traditionally used in wound care for EB. Participants with EB reported greater comfort, healing of persistent wounds, and enhanced self-esteem using the new garments, and an average annual saving of £10 943 per patient is estimated.
