Application

How it works

Smart Matrix® harnesses the body’s own healing processes. It acts as a scaffold to provide a framework for new blood vessels and skin cells to infiltrate a wound, critical to healthy skin regeneration and repair. Smart Matrix® is a single application device and is absorbed into the body as wound healing progresses.

Preliminary data suggest that Smart Matrix® enables wound healing without the need for a skin graft, unlike other treatments for “full thickness” or deep skin wounds.
 

Clinical uses

Smart Matrix® is primarily being developed as a clinical treatment for surgical wounds, such as in the removal of skin cancer tumours. Other potential uses include the treatment of chronic wounds, severe burns, trauma injuries, military wounds and ulcers.

A clinical trial is currently being prepared, to be carried out in 2018.
