Resumen:
Una empresa irlandesa ha inventado una nueva venda extremadamente eficaz para heridas en el dedo, desde cortes hasta laceraciones medias. La velocidad de cicatrización es muy rápida, a menudo de tan solo tres días, incluso para lesiones profundas. El producto puede aplicarse en segundos por el paciente inmediatamente después de la lesión sobre la piel impregnada de sangre. La venda se encuentra en fase de prototipo y ha sido probada en ensayos clínicos muy limitados con resultados muy prometedores. La empresa busca compañías médicas interesadas en continuar con el desarrollo y comercializar la tecnología en un mercado internacional potencialmente grande. El objetivo es establecer acuerdos de licencia o comercialización con asistencia técnica.

Tittle:
New Finger Wound Dressing
Summary:
A small Irish invention company based in Wicklow Ireland has invented a new and extremely effective finger wound dressing.
The company is now making the technology available for a licensing and or commercial agency agreement with technical assistance, with medium to large medical company to further develop and commercialise the invention and sell into a potentially large international market.
Description:
Some of the most common injuries are finger wounds yet surprisingly there is no presently available medical product that can treat them effectively that is practical for patient use.
The types of finger wounds suitable for this dressing would range from cuts to medium lacerations.
Products presently available:
Sticking plasters can present many problems, including: Other than for very minor cuts they do not perform well, they offer little wound closure benefit, skin maceration is very common, and its associated anaerobic environment is a further cause of slow healing. According to their manufacturers they need regular changing and suffer considerable adhesion problems unless applied on dry uncontaminated skin.
Surgical strips are an improvement over sticking plasters for finger wounds but being similar in construction also have some of their disadvantages. They can offer better wound healing than sticking plasters but perform poorly when the skin is not dry, or they are subjected to skin flexure near finger joints.
Cyanoacrylate adhesives are successfully used for many medical procedures, but they are unsuitable on areas of high skin flexure found on and around finger joints.
Sutures are a most effective method of closing deeper finger wounds but suffer the disadvantage of the patient having to attend a medical facility to have them inserted and again to have them removed.
The Irish company based in Wicklow, Ireland, is now making the technology available for a licensing and or commercial agency agreement with technical assistance, to medium to large medical company to further develop and commercialise the invention and sell into a potentially large international market.
Advantages and Innovations:
· The speed of healing is exceptionally rapid, often in as little as three days, even for deeper injuries.
· Inexpensive to manufacture and would compete with the sticking plaster type products.
· It can be self-applied in seconds by the patient immediately following the injury to wet, oily or blood soiled contaminated skin.
· After application, utilising a unique compression approach, there is instant, total staunching of bleeding and a significant reduction in pain and trauma.
· Needs no further covering nor any dressing changes.
· If applicable, work can be immediately resumed.
Stage of Development:
Prototype available for demonstration
IPs:
Patent(s) applied for but not yet granted
CommeR Statunts Regarding IPR Status:
Patent is applied for in Ireland but not yet granted

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
The partner company should have a wide knowledge of surgical tape technology with an emphasis on strength of skin adhesion.
A good understanding of co-construction with other materials would also be desirable.
