Innovations in the treatment of wounds
State-of-the-art technologies in advanced wounds' care are designated for patients whose medical condition requires external intervention that should aid the body to prevent, diagnose and treat those slow-healing wounds.
Phayronet's advanced technologies can be broken down to patients suffering from slow-healing wounds into three major categories:
- Wounds' diagnosis technologies.
- Wounds' treatment technologies.
- Wounds' prevention technologies.
Each category has its own designated technologies for the wide variety of slow-healing wounds, including bedsores, diabetes-induced sores, sores caused by a blood-vessels' disease and trauma sores related to burns and surgery.
Phayronet's technology for wounds' diagnosis
With the wounds' diagnosis technologies, the industry invests resources in search of potential markers that impact the wounds-healing process – so far Phayronet has identified and developed diagnostic tests down to pretease level (an enzyme that breaks down the healthy tissue and inhibits the healing process), and tissue-oxidation diagnostic methods are currently in advanced stages of development, which also impacts new blood-vessels generation and an infection level that can aggravate and enlarge the sore.
A discussion summary published by members of the World Union of Wound Healing in 2007 stated that wounds diagnosis will revolutionize wound treatment as there is an urgent necessity to find the tools that help physicians learn more about the healing process.
Phayronet's wounds-treatment technologies
This category is the largest of the three, and also has the highest level of awareness, containing advanced dressing with substances such as polymers, silver ions, collagens, alginates and the like, which are meant to provide an optimal healing environment with local as well as cellular treatment.
