Sharing brave stories of our customers

Life - beyond wound care

HARTMANN Stories is a series of films featuring real people - our customers.

We're lifting the lid on wound care and what it's truly like to live every day with a wound. HARTMANN Stories looks beyond what we see as a wound care dressing and managing a wound as a patient, supporting a loved one with a wound or being a healthcare professional trying to heal a wound. We're revealing the people and their experiences to help others in similar situations understand the real-life issues and daily challenges that living with a wound brings.

The videos on this page showcase personal and honest accounts of what life is really like when every day means facing pain, mobility difficulties, mental health challenges, and family life upheaval, all due to a wound.
