Description

The UVC LED Wound Care team developed a handheld, battery operated device capable of disinfecting acute open fractures. Using LEDs in the UVC region of the electromagnetic spectrum, the device has the ability to kill various virus and bacteria in an open wound, limiting the chance for infection. This device will primarily be used in economically disadvantaged countries with unreliable access to sufficient medical treatment.
