Provant Therapy of Venous Stasis Ulcer Trial

2014-07-23 21:11:05 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This pilot study hypothesizes that use of the Regenesis Provant Wound Therapy System (a radiofrequency device) twice daily over venous stasis ulcers (wounds thought to occur due to improper functioning of valves in the veins, usually of the legs) will result in increased rates of healing and a larger proportion of completely healed wounds after 12 weeks of therapy compared to wounds treated identically using a Provant device that is not activated to emit radiofrequency.
