Cold plasma cures chronic wounds: a sparkling solution

Project description

A new solution to treat hard-to-heal wounds

Some wounds have trouble healing. These chronic wounds are a serious health concern with devastating consequences for patients, leading to amputations and loss of independence. In the EU, at least three million people suffer from chronic wounds. To alleviate this issue, the EU-funded PLASOMA project is aiming towards a solution that will improve wound healing. Developed by the Dutch medtech start-up company, Plasmacure, a cold plasma solution brings bactericidal cold plasma directly in the wound. The method consists of disposable plasma pads and a pulser. The pad is put on the wound and connected to the pulser that sends energy to the pad to create cold plasma. To further consolidate the initial encouraging results, a multinational clinical study will be conducted to generate clinical efficacy data.
