What is Plasma Technology?

In physics, plasma is considered as the non-classical or fourth state of matter, next to the three classical states (solid, liquid, gaseous). Ninety-nine per cent of the visible matter in our universe is made up of plasma.

Plasma

The term plasma is of Greek origin (plásma = something molded or formed). The term goes back to the American chemist and physicist Irving Langmuir (1881 to 1957), who was the first to work with plasma.

Plasma Technology in Physics

In physics, plasma is considered as the non-classical or fourth state of matter, next to the three classical states of matter (solid, liquid, gaseous). Any gas can be transformed into plasma by adding energy.

The addition of energy causes the separation of charge carriers and the disintegration of molecular compounds. Plasma therefore is a partially ionised gas with many interesting properties.

Plasma has a characteristic glow, which is caused by radiation emitted by activated atoms, ions and molecules. Ninety-nine per cent of the visible matter in our universe is made up of plasma.

Plasma Technology in Medicine

“Hot” plasma has been used in medicine for decades, mainly in surgery, e.g., to separate tissues and to dilate vessels. Hot plasma is used globally in many surgical areas and can be considered as medically harmless as long as it is used in accordance with its intended use.

PlasmaDerm® – Innovative in wound healing stimulation and germ reduction

PlasmaDerm® medical devices for the application of plasma technology in wound healing and germ reduction are the first globally to be certified in compliance with EG Guideline 93/42/EEC. The devices produce tissue-compatible plasma with gas temperatures at body temperature, which makes them suitable especially for the local treatment of microbial contaminated and infected skin and wounds. The deep-stimulation of treated skin and wound surfaces results from an electrical field from a high frequency alternating current. The electric field induces sustainably increased blood microcirculation in the treated skin or wound, resulting in an increased supply with oxygen and nutrients. In short, PlasmaDerm® therapy activates the wound-healing power.

Clinical Study

A two-arm, randomised, single-blind, controlled clinical study according to DIN EN ISO 14155 was conducted at the University Medical Centre Göttingen that showed the safety of PlasmaDerm® therapy for patient and user, the antimicrobial efficiency on chronic ulcer wounds, and the practicability of the PlasmaDerm® devices. Other clinical partners have confirmed these results.

Results of Clinical Research

  • increased microcirculation in the skin tissue
  • stimulation of wound healing
  • very efficient against typical wound germs present in chronic ulcers
  • active against MRSA and other problem germs
  • quick onset of results
  • very good tolerability
  • Pain-free application
  • biofilm inhibition
  • lowering of pH
  • no resistance formation
