Wound Healing Research
Non-invasive technology has proven to be a necessary tool to aid researchers involved in studying
burns and wounds. Wound healing is one of the more difficult conditions to monitor as there is
often substantial pain associated with a wound, in particular if the wound is a burn. Similar
challenges exist where skin grafts are involved, whether the patient is being treated using autologous
skin or synthetic skin products. Monitoring treatment response with a biopsy procedure presents obstacles
due to the re-injury of the wound. This increases the patient's risk of further complications
or infections, as well as introducing a confounding effect to the clinical trial.
DPM impedance technology provides an effective method for obtaining objective data without causing
discomfort to the patient through non-invasive instrument monitoring of the healing of damaged tissue.
NOVA also offers single subject/disposable probe tips to eliminate any danger of infection or cross- contamination
NOVA instrumentation enables researchers to analyze re-epithialization during research studies of wound care.
Researchers can non-invasively measure barrier function development over time, which directly reflects to
the re-epithelialization of the skin.
