Radio electric tissue optimization in the treatment of surgical wounds

Clin Cosmet Investig Dermatol. 2011;4:133-7. doi: 10.2147/CCID.S24090. Epub 2011 Aug 25.


Purpose: To report preliminary results with the tissue optimization (TO) treatment with a radio electric asymmetric conveyer (REAC) in promoting the repair of surgical wounds.

Patients and methods: Two subjects, a 54-year-old male with a tear bruise on the upper third of the leg and a 19-year-old female with a stab wound to the hand, were treated with 12 REAC-TO treatment sessions.

Results: In both patients, the wounds showed shorter healing time compared with the time usually required for similar wounds, and good repair quality.

Conclusion: REAC device with its specific treatment protocols may be an alternative therapy for wound healing.

Keywords: healing time; quality of repair; tissue regeneration; tissue repair.
