What is WinPet?
On the basis of many discoveries and innovations, there are needs with unsolved problems. From the beginning of human history to the present day, people have behaviors of bringing solutions to the problems they encounter and making life easier. They first presented their inventions to the use of mankind after experiencing it by themselves. Easy and practical inventions have always been accepted and spread quickly among users.
WinPet has appeared in return for a demand and a problem. In all mammalian organisms, wound recovery process is distressing. Wounds are recovered by scratching. This is a completely physiological case (See: Why do cats-dogs preen their wounds?) However in pets and rodents, a learnt licking instinct predominates due to the antiseptic feature of saliva as well as the scratching arising from the wound recovery process. Scratching the wound continuously and getting involved in the wound recovery process are an undesired situation in modern medicine. In case that the patient gets involved in the wound, infection risk increases and recovery process prolongs. Thus, it is provided for the patients to complete the recovery process by restricting their life and behaviors via some methods after the operations. However, the patient getting distressed due to the operation or injury, also has the stress of losing its life comfort during the recovery process. The patient under stress is prone to depression. In most patients, nervousness and groundless aggression may develop as well as fear, timidness, and uneasiness feelings after the operations. Current veterinarians and paw friends become helpless against this problem. Classical methods used today cannot be sufficient in most of the cases and besides, they trigger the feeling of depression and anxiety in the patient.
WinPet Wound Protecting Corset is a high-tech medical product that is made of technical fabric which has arisen as a complete solution for this problem. The initial prototype WinPet’s were made of plastic water bottles and they were rather successful in the recovery process. From this point of view, resistance, liquid-tight and quick-drying features of the plastic water bottle are reflected on the technical fabric of WinPet during the R&D period. Additionally, characteristics of anti-microbial, anti-allergic, and elastane that will provide value added to the product and increase its functionality have been also provided.
Owing to its ergonomic design; WinPet, which can be used safely in the patients from all sizes and weights, prevents the patient from damaging the wound without reducing its comfort during the recovery process. It provides the patient to feel safe with its soft texture and its wrapping structure via the slight pressure effect from various points in the body. In the patient wrapped in an unusual way, distraction occurs and the behavior of poking the wound and scratching reduces.
WinPet is a major innovation and convenience for the pet patients, patient owners and veterinarians.
