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.
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.
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.
