A San Antonio medical device company has developed a hand held-device similar to a smart phone. The device generates pure oxygen from a tiny fuel cell, which helps treats chronic wounds.
This technology oxygenates the wounds, frequently speeding up the healing process and dramatically minimizing the need for below-the-knee amputations.
On the next SciTech Now, we go to EO2 Concepts to learn more about this device and how it's making a positive impact on diabetics and other patients needing specialized treatment.
