We are a med-tech start-up in Nijmegen. At Plasmacure we envision a world in which people no longer suffer from chronic wounds. Wounds that have trouble healing are a serious health and costs concern with devastating consequences for patients, leading to amputations and loss of independence. Cold plasma can stimulate wound healing. Our dedicated team has developed a safe way to apply cold plasma directly in a wound. PLASOMA, with its patented cold plasma solution, is ground-breaking and brings bactericidal cold plasma directly in the wound.
PLASOMA, a medical device for wound healing stimulation with cold plasma
PLASOMA consists of a cold plasma pad and a cold plasma pulser. The pad is put on the wound and connected to the pulser that sends energy to the pad to create cold plasma. PLASOMA is CE-certified and available for the market. Extensive clinical trials will be executed in various European countries to gain more data.**
A clinical trial* on diabetic foot ulcers (on average 3-years old) was conducted on 20 subjects. In 2 weeks 11 wounds reduced by >50% in size, 2 healed completely. Also, the number of Staphylococcus aureus colonies decreased significantly directly after plasma treatment compared with prior to application.
