Clinical Applications > Cold Plasma for Skin Grafting

BioWeld1 has the potential to revolutionize skin grafting with the “Graft biowelding” fixation
and plasma healing treatment

Current issues in skin grafting

  • Failure rate from 5%-30%*
  • Infection
  • Skin graft mobility is a common problem
  • Fibrin glues improve success rate but are cost-prohibitive for many hospital systems
  • Staplers very painful to remove (anesthesia often required)

The BioWeld1 System is designed to enable skin grafting with no staples

  • Potential to improve graft fixation compared to staples
  • Potential to enhance healing of graft
  • Potential to eliminate painful staples
  • Potential anti-bacterial effects for infection prevention

The BioWeld1 System also has the potential to enhance donor site healing
