The application of plasma technology in medicine has already been researched for several years and is widely accepted today. Efficient wound disinfection with cold plasma was, for example, verified and carefully studied in the course of clinical trials at the university hospital Regensburg and the hospital München Schwabing that lasted for several years. These trials were supported by the terraplasma group. A highly significant reduction of the bacterial load was proven, while the treatment had no side effects. Furthermore, there was some evidence for an improved and accelerated wound healing process.
In the summer of 2019 another clinical trial was initiated to examine the treatment of patients with infected chronic wounds with the plasma care®. This trial will last for about 12 months and is carried out at four clinical trial sites in Munich, Recklinghausen, Detmold and Regensburg.
