EU: The Spincare System is intended for the treatment of skin breaches such as superficial and partial thickness wounds, abrasions, superficial and partial thickness burns, donor site wounds, surgical incisions, after suture removal, skin tears, dermatological lesions.
Spincare is based on an electrospinning technology, embedded in a lightweight, portable wound care device. The Spincare technology uses a polymer solution to print a multi-layer fibrous matrix that mimics the structure of the extracellular body tissue (ECM).
The Spincare System is a personalized treatment option, coupled with a disposable, single patient sterile solution ampule, which enables quick and pain-reduced healing through real- time printing of a site-specific matrix directly onto a wound. Spincare utilizes proprietary Electrospun Healing Fiber (EHF™) technology to treat all forms of wounds, with a single application, eliminating the need for painful re-dressings.
The Spincare matrix is a fibrous matrix printed directly onto a patient’s wound that bio-mimics the structure of natural skin, providing a transparent protective physical barrier, allowing for easy monitoring of the healing process while reducing risk of infection. It serves as a temporary skin layer until the full healing of the wound. It peels off spontaneously when the wound is healed.
The advantages of Spincare over common wound dressings are listed above; patients are spared the pain of the initial dressing and repeated changes of dressings; physicians will be able to view and interact with the wound through the transparent matrix; patients have a greater ability to accomplish activities of daily living, can take regular showers and restore their quality of life.
Yes, shortly after the Spincare matrix has been printed, it becomes transparent and thus allows wound assessment through the matrix.
Usually 24-48 hours.
There is no need to remove the matrix; it peels off naturally when the wound is healed underneath. Should there be a clinical need to remove it, it can be done by soaking and gently pulling it off.
If needed, yes. Make sure the wound is clean and remove any loose residues.
Yes. In such cases you can either wait 24 hours before printing the Spincare matrix or use a secondary absorbent layer during the first few days. Make sure that the secondary dressing does not stick to the matrix by changing it frequently or by using a non-stick silicon layer – such as Mepitel, and an absorbent layer above – for the first few days, then leave open.
Treat the wound according to hospital standard of care. Sterile wash, antimicrobial solution, or any other treatments can be applied over the matrix without removing it.
Spincare is intended for superficial to intermediate and partial thickness wounds.
There is a risk that the matrix might be peeled off due to the friction. In these cases, it is recommended to use a secondary dressing for the first days.
Normally until healing and full epithelialization of the wound. At this point, the matrix peels off naturally.
As soon as a whitish matrix is visible the wound is covered. Make sure that all the edges of the wound are well covered.
No. Greasy ointments can prevent the matrix from attaching to the wound.
Yes, for wounds with controlled bleeding such as donor site wounds, post debridement etc.
The Spincare solution is a biocompatible polymer-based solution with no biological components.
The Spincare System is highly efficient and the length of the procedure depends on the size of the wound. It does not normally take more than a few minutes. No cutting, trimming, patching or fixation are needed.
The material is robust enough and will not detach itself unless you purposely rub it with force. If there is a risk that the matrix might be peeled off due to substantial friction it is recommended to use a secondary dressing.
