A medical study using the Ohmedics’ WoundSense product conducted on over 600 patients with long term wounds concluded that 44% of dressing changes were not required. The potential savings to NHS and other healthcare providers runs into 100s of millions (GBP £) and could reduce exposure to infections and reduce discomfort to patients.

Ohmedics expects to be able to early detect oncoming infections for lung disease sufferers

 

Ohmedics is now almost two years into an InnovateUK funded grant to identify when patients with lung disease could be about to have an exacerbation in their condition due to lung infection. The project progress has been very positive with the early production of the reagentlessdetection system and the identification of electronic signatures for a number of the commonlung bacterial infections. Such early detection will allow swift community intervention and should reduce the number of hospital entries. The technology platform will also have application in detection of urine and other fluid borne infections.
