Fighting pathogens – accelerating wound healing
The kINPen® MED plasma jet can be used for a wide range of indications including both acute and chronic wounds. Even wounds that are considered to be beyond therapy may benefit from the positive effect. The kINPen® MED accelerates wound healing based on a three-level effect:
- Inactivation of bacteria, fungi and viruses (including multi-resistant germs such as MRSA)
- Promotion of the microcirculation, thereby improving the oxygen
and nutrient supply of the tissue
- Stimulation of the growth and regeneration processes of the
tissue until possible wound closure
The therapy is mostly painless and may have a relieving effect on pain and itching right from the first treatment. So far, no adverse complications or resistance development have been observed.
Experience from clinical application
At the moment there is a large number of international publications providing evidence of the effectiveness of cold plasma in medical applications. In this context, the kINPen® MED plasma jet is globally among the best validated technologies.
neoplas med now corroborates this competence with the first placebo-controlled, patient blinded prospective study investigating the application of cold plasma in patients with diabetic foot syndrome that will provide further relevant insights on the cold plasma therapy with the kINPen® MED plasma jet.
The wound and the wound healing process
Wound healing is a complex process. Its duration depends on may factors such as the severity of an injury, underlying diseases such as diabetes mellitus, or the age of the patient. Wounds are categorised as acute wounds resulting from external influences such as cuts, falls or abrasions, and chronic wounds lacking healing tendency.
The kINPen® MED plasma jet may present a highly effective therapy alternative especially for chronic wounds that fail to respond to conventional treatment. The plasma jet promotes and supports the wound healing processes and may potentially induce wound closure.
An overview of the wounds described above, of the wound healing phases and the functional and effective mechanism of wound healing is described below.
