A Breakthrough in Hydrogel Technology

Current Problem

Diabetic ulcers are costly, chronic wounds that often result in limb amputations. Diabetic ulcers are estimated to cost $78 billion per year in the United States alone, they lead to 80% of non-traumatic amputations, and every 20 seconds a limb is lost to a diabetic ulcer. Better treatment options are desperately needed.

Challenge

first aid tools

Chronic wounds suffer from high levels of inflammation which impairs the natural healing process. Wound dressings currently available do not address the inflammation problem. Currently available wound dressings are also not capable of sustained therapeutic delivery.

GelSana’s novel hydrogel technology helps reduce inflammation at the wound site, providing decreased healing time. Faster healing reduces the risk of infection and amputation.

Our novel hydrogels have superior handling properties.

GelSana hydrogels are also capable of providing sustained release of therapeutics to the wound bed over time, promoting even faster healing.
