OSNovation Systems, Inc., a startup out of Santa Clara, CA, is commercializing a new class of super-advanced wound dressings with variable functionality. Based on a proprietary design and advanced polymer materials, the Self-Adaptive dressing is designed to accommodate any wound at any stage of healing, reduce pain without drugs and to promote healing of chronic or stalled wounds.
According to Oleg Siniaguine, a high tech and nano-material veteran in the Silicon Valley and the company’s founder, the Self-Adaptive dressing alone makes obsolete most of the multitude of single-function advanced dressing types currently used for different wounds and stages of healing. The Self-Adaptive dressing significantly simplifies wound care by taking the guesswork out of wound dressing selection. The use of Self-Adaptive dressings improves the efficiency and economy of wound care in both institutional and home care settings.
Due to dramatic reduction of dressing inventory assortment, applicability to all wounds and less dependence on caregiver skills, the Self-Adaptive dressings are ideal also for remote locations and field medicine.
More from the company on how its technology enables “continuous adjustment to the underlying wound condition at every moment and any part of the wound”:
Self-Adaptive Wound Dressing is capable of dealing with continuously changing wound conditions, and adjusting to emerging requirements that may have been unknown or unpredictable when the dressing was applied. The dressing material is designed to change its properties according to feedback from underlying wound tissues.
Self-Adaptive Wound Dressing dynamically balances the evolving moist wound environment, providing hydration or absorption depending on the instantaneous needs of wound and peri-wound skin. Dry areas of the wound stay properly hydrated, fluid from exuding areas is absorbed and locked in, and peri-wound skin is protected from maceration.
