THE ONLY BIOELECTRIC TECHNOLOGY FOR BIOFILM INFECTIONS

80% of wound infections are believed to be caused by bacteria with biofilm.15

Biofilm infections are extremely difficult to treat because they impede the body’s immune defenses and render bacteria highly resistant to antibiotics. Drug development cannot outpace the increase in antibiotic resistance. The WHO has called for new solutions to this global health threat.

3 Critically Dangerous Bacteria

Acinetobacter baumanni
(Carbapenem-resistant)

Pseudomonas aeruginosa
(Carbapenem-resistant)

Enterobacteriaceae
(Carbapenem-resistant)
(ESBL-producing)

Empowered by Electric Communication

Bacteria use electric signaling to communicate and form a protective biofilm coating

Biofilm makes bacteria highly resistant to antibiotics and the body’s immune system

TECHNOLOGY

Vomaris’s core technology powers the only non-antibiotic antimicrobial technology that is inspired by the body’s natural electrical healing process. It employs embedded microcell batteries that generate an electric field designed to mimic the body’s physiologic electric fields,1 which are essential for cell migration and wound healing.10 It is a new generation solution for wound and incisional care with demonstrated antimicrobial impact against a broad spectrum of microbes including antibiotic-resistant and biofilm-forming bacteria.2-5

Traumatic Lacerations

Dog Bite on Upper Lip

Injuries sustained due to dog attack. Upper lip completely severed and lateral commissure partially avulsed. Wounds repaired with two-layers of absorbable sutures. Procellera® use started at day 4 post-repair and continued for several weeks beyond wound healing.

Dog Bite on Hand

Full thickness bite injury to left hand and fingers by an attack dog during training exercises. Procellera® Antimicrobial Wound Dressing was applied post-operatively.

Traumatic & Deep Wounds

Traumatic Scalp Avulsion

Multi-trauma from motor cycle accident with full thickness scalp avulsion wound and exposed frontal bone involving a portion of hair-bearing scalp. Procellera® Antimicrobial Wound Dressing was used when attempts to place NPWT were unsuccessful due to wound location and inability to maintain an airtight seal.

Excised Burn Wound

Left forearm burn was treated by excision; became infected with Staphylococcus aureus. The wound was opened on Week 3 post-operatively and left open to heal and Procellera® Antimicrobial Wound Dressing was applied.

Sports Injuries

Road Rash on Leg

Road rash injury sustained during cycling accident. Cyclist applied Procellera® Antimicrobial Wound Dressing to top half of wound only and covered with moist gauze pad. Bottom half of wound remained uncovered, as athlete wanted to "test" if there was any difference in healing between Procellera dressing and no dressing.

Road Rash on Leg

Professional triathlete sustained road rash abrasion on left leg during cycling accident. Used Procellera® Antimicrobial Wound Dressing post-treatment.

Burns

Laser Facial Resurfacing

Patient underwent laser facial resurfacing procedure. Treated post-procedure with Procellera® Antimicrobial Wound Dressing.

Traumatic Lacerations - Equine

Show Horse Injury

Dressage and show horse presented with a large fence injury. Multiple different treatments were employed to treat the wound without success. Procellera® Antimicrobial Wound Dressing was initiated Day 28 post presentation.
