Does more power lead to enhanced wound care treatment?

In simple terms, the answer is yes. To look more in depth at the question we need to understand how the Cold Plasma is generated and the mechanics behind it. The SteriPlas boasts a large 12cm2 treatment area which fully covers typical chronic wounds expected in wound clinics. There are of course much larger wounds than 12cm2 but thanks to the mechanics behind the SteriPlas it only requires a 2 minute treatment time for each 12cm2 area it covers.

There are some Cold Plasma devices that claim a 100cm2 treatment area but how does the power behind it compare to the SteriPlas? It is without question, the SteriPlas is one of the largest Cold Plasma medical devices on the medical market and it is strategically large for a reason. It is the only Cold Plasma medical device able to produce a deep, dense, and rich Cold Plasma. To produce repeatable and consistent results with antibiofilm properties, there are a series of crucial internal components in the SteriPlas that collectively work to perform this including the 200W 2.45GHz microwave generator, plasma ignition control, mass flow controller, arm to hold plasma treatment head in place during use, control system linked to interlock and alarms, cooling system and safety circuits.

Smaller Cold Plasma devices with larger treatment areas generate different plasmas. Whilst some reduction of bacterial load may be observed with their use, it is strictly limited to superficial and small wounds certainly with no biofilm presence. To combat biofilm within wounds, the Cold Plasma does need to be deeply penetrating and to do this more power and plasma density is certainly required.

The SteriPlas, by default, is designed to target deep, chronic and severe infections with biofilm complications within the wound. Peer reviewed clinical evidence for smaller devices with larger treatment areas are still limited.

The SteriPlas boasts a wide clinical bibliography of 80+ peer reviewed clinical trials and studies. It is the leader in the Cold Plasma medical market for a reason.
