A breakthrough laser-based medical device to eradicate bacterial biofilm in chronic wounds and accelerate wound healing.

Project description

Safe laser device kills bacterial biofilms in chronic wounds

There are no current methods to eradicate the bacterial biofilms that form in chronic wounds, preventing faster healing for an estimated 10 million people in Europe and 6.4 million in the US. The LASER-HEAL project addresses this lack through a device that reaches deep within wounds and includes software that recognises wound terrain and helps position a laser accurately. This non-invasive technology uses a dozen half-hour treatments at EUR 1 000 per treatment, and it does not destroy skin cells. The aim is to build a clientele first through US clinics, prior to expanding to Europe and globally.
