State of the art microcurrent technology: A “practice-altering” approach to advanced wound care
Procellera® is an antimicrobial wound dressing for wounds. Its inherent design with microcurrent technology provides a unique, cutting-edge solution to advanced wound care.
Procellera® is an antimicrobial wound dressing for partial and full thickness wounds. The Procellera® device provides an advanced wound care solution due to its inherent design with microcurrent technology. Silver and zinc are applied on the device surface in a dot matrix pattern, creating multiple microbatteries. In the presence of a conductive fluid, which may come from wound exudate or exogenously applied moisture, low-level microcurrents occur at the device surface. These reactions occur without an external power source or accessories: Procellera® is a self-contained, conformable and portable device.
The Procellera cloth bandage contains small silver and zinc dots in the pattern of tiny batteries that create micro-currents when moist, according to the bandage’s manufacturer, Vomaris. The electric currents mimic the body’s own energy levels — a process that the Arizona-based company says helps speed up repair of the entire wound rather than just the edges.
A unit of Army Rangers recently found that the bandage gave quick pain relief from foot blisters, allowing the elite soldiers to march on without problems, the Army says. It hopes that scientific testing of the antimicrobial bandage can back up such success stories.
Silver has a long medical history of use in preventing infections. The FDA approved the antimicrobial bandage for use with skin wounds ranging from simple abrasions to traumatic wounds and surgical sites.
