New evidence was just announced that Celleration Corp’s MIST therapy reduces wound healing time. How? Well, by using ultrasound to carry saline to moisten the wound. No, really, it’s peer-reviewed:
The MIST Therapy System 5.0 is designed to deliver therapeutic ultrasound to the wound bed without direct contact of the device to the body (non-contact). The system generates and propels the therapeutic mist towards the tissue. The saline solution is directed to the tip surface and is atomized through the vibration of the tip surface. This surface creates atomization of the fluid, breaking it apart into small particles of uniform size. Once the particles of fluid are released from the tip, a second phenomenon, the acoustic pressure wave, drives them toward the wound. Treatments take only minutes and improved clinical outcomes can often be seen within just a few treatments.
Sounds very new-agey (all that’s missing is magnets), but it was shown to decrease healing time from 10 weeks to seven. We’d like to see a comparison with high-pressure oxygen, which has also been shown to aid wound healing.
