The WoundShield system delivers localized energy to expedite tissue healing. Therapeutic transducers are incorporated into disposable patches used to accelerate wound healing. Additionally, WoundShield can be used to enhance oxygen and topical drug delivery, producing an effect like an injection without any needles, similar to an Iontophoresis patch. WoundShield can be incorporated to Negative Pressure Wound Therapy providing a synergetic wound healing effect. With its unique low-frequency and low-intensity, this product expedites healing, enhances oxygen supply, and facilitates topical medicine delivery. Patients will start to experience the therapeutic benefits of ultrasound for wound healing immediately.

Z-SHIELD FOR PERCUTANEOUS NEPHROSTOMY; The Z-Shield patch is an acoustically active stabilization patch designed for percutaneous nephrostomy catheters and applies low frequency ultrasound to the nephrostomy tube to decrease biofilm and maintain patency. At the same time the Z-Shield patch administers low frequency ultrasound to the puncture site to decrease pain and discomfort associated with percutaneous tubes (e.g. nephrostomy) These tubes cause a marked decrease in quality of life for patients as well as frequently precipitate urgent medical need to maintain tube patency or to exchange the tube for a new one.
