An Israeli company is developing a new form of relief for people who suffer from diabetic ulcers and venous ulcers as well as other wounds to the skin.
EnzySurge, based in Shoham has already raised several million dollars to fund its technology which treats such wounds and ailments in a fraction of the time normally taken.
"Available solutions for wound debridement and preparation are major consumers of time of physicians and nurses, require weeks and months for ultimate healing and many times involve lengthy and expensive hospitalization," said company founder Professor Amihay Freeman. "Our solution includes knowledge of industrial enzymatic processes that we adapt to the environment of the human body for effective treatment and at low production costs."
Its method of dealing with wounds works by delivering a constant flow of cleaning and healing solutions, rather than just a one-off which in tests is said to have accelerated the healing process.
The device that supplies this allows treatment to be undertaken either as outpatient or at home without the need of long-term hospital stays.
Trails on humans is expected later this year in Israel.
