Wound healing is critical for an optimal surgical outcome. The human body has its own ability to heal incisions. However, with the right environment, wound healing can be accelerated and promoted. JumpStart is a microcurrent generating antimicrobial wound dressing designed to mimic the body’s natural physiologic electric currents. The dot matrix pattern of silver and zinc microcell batteries embedded on the dressing generate microcurrents in the presence of a conductive medium, such as sterile saline, water, hydrogel or wound exudate. JumpStart dressings may be applied directly over sutures, staples, Steri-Strips and liquid skin adhesives.
