We treat patients with hard to heal wounds regularly, some inpatients receive daily treatments, some outpatients are treated as often as
they can come with a 2 minute exposure time

  • 73.5% reduction in total bacterial load despite the type of bacteria or its resistance to antibiotics.2
  • 50% more effective than antibiotics.2
  • 63% reduction in wound size.3
  • 53.5% reduction in wound depth.3
  • 44.9% reduction in perceived level of pain.3
  • Proven to kill a wide range of Gram positive
    and Gram negative bacteria.
  • No side effects reported.
  • 2 minute treatment time.

Plasma is an energised gas often referred to as the fourth state of matter (solid, liquid, gas and plasma). Plasma is formed when energy is applied to a gas. The components of gas plasma include reactive oxygen and nitrogen species, OH radicals, ions, electrons, photons and UV light which coupled together ensure reproducible therapeutic effects during patient treatments.

The Adtec SteriPlas delivers a physical mode of action during treatment. Charged particles created from within the plasma chamber are released and bombard the cellular walls of bacteria which quickly ruptures the cellular structure. The remaining components of the plasma, including the reactive oxygen and nitrogen species and UV light, enter through these gaps created to deactivate the microbial DNA. This effectively destroys the bacteria present, even if they are protected within biofilm

Because of the physical bombardment on the bacteria, a primary or secondary resistance to plasma is unlikely to be developed.1

What is Plasma?

How it works?

Controlled neutral plasma for effective
wound management

Positively influencing wound healing by reduction in bacterial
load and by modifying the wound microenvironment.

Antibacterial Effectiveness

Multi-electrode cathode array emits electrons that are energized by an electric field in an ionization chamber

Electrons bombard the Argon

gas, forming ionized plasma

Adtec Sensor Module

continuously monitors plasma temperature for safe delivery
