Burns & Scalds

Burns is among the most common injuries in the U.S. and in many other countries. In India, approximately 2 million people suffer from burns annually and it is estimated that this causes an economic burden of approximately $2.5 billion annually. In India, burn injuries are a leading cause of death and morbidity, especially among children. The main causes of burns in India are cooking accidents (48.9%), hot water accidents (29.6%), electric shocks (9.3%), other accidents (3.9%), and fires (3.7%).

The extent of burns over the skin surface can be calculated by the percentage of the total surface area affected. The depth of the burn is approximated by the percentage of the total depth of the skin affected. The depth of the burn is important to the prognosis and management of the burn.

The depth of skin burns is difficult to estimate in the first two days. This affects the diagnosis of range and severity and specific treatments. Currently, there are no devices that can measure this non-invasively and rely on subjective clinical judgment, delaying specific treatments and morbidity.

The studies showed that the diagnosis of the depth of skin burns could be conducted by measuring the thermal conductivity of the burnt skin. However, it has some disadvantages: it is not sensitive enough to measure the depth of the burns, and it does not allow a continuous monitoring of the burns.

Our product SpeccaFlow is a non-invasive device for the immediate measurement of tissue perfusion and may help predict the outcome of burns at an early stage. It can measure the severity and depth of burns on skin surfaces. It can be used with current clinical image depth assessment methods such as thermocouples and ultrasound. This device can be used for both acute and chronic burns.
