Assessment of wound healing following electrical stimulation with Accel-Heal®

Electrical stimulation is the use of an electrical current to transfer energy to a wound. When the body’s endogenous bioelectric system fails and cannot contribute to repair processes, therapeutic levels of electrical current are delivered into the wound tissue from an external source. Many chronic wounds heal slowly, do not heal, or worsen, despite the best efforts of care givers to promote tissue repair (Posnett and Franks, 2008). Synapse Accel-Heal® is a registered class IIA medical device, which uses a specific proprietary sequence of micro-current electrical pulses designed to interact with biological processes that have become dormant within a chronic non-healing wound.
