Problem and Need

Flask of the stuff
  • The cost of wounds is affected by prolonged and intensified treatment, as well as prolonged hospitalization and specialized treatment.
  • Chronic wounds can lead to serious infections, gangrene, and in the worst cases amputation.
  • Currently low rates of wound closure.
  • Rise in prevalence of chronic wounds, has led to an increased demand for management approaches and device platforms dedicated to wound-care.
  • Actual products continue to provide only palliative treatment: Patient mobility, quality of life and overall individual well being are not positively affected
  • These issues call for a dramatic change of focus on improving the effectiveness of the wound healing process

Value Added

  • We critically examine the total cost of treatment and patient experience over the unit cost for a given product.
  • Reduced wound management time saves significant resources, including hospital bed time, antibiotics, diagnostics, and transfer costs.
  • We create value by enabling healthcare professionals to manage variouse wound etiologies with fewer resources.

Oxygen and Wound Healing

Oxygen is a prerequisite for successful wound healing due to the increased demand for reparative processes such as cell proliferation, bacterial defense, angiogenesis and collagen synthesis. The availability of oxygen is required to start or sustain other wound healing processes” (Journal of Dermatology, 2010). Additionally, hyperbaric oxygen therapy for wound healing demonstrated significantly significant improvements with the application of oxygen to the wound site
