Magic wand? 2 novel systems for diabetic foot enter clinical trials

Two innovative methods to remove dead tissue and control infection in diabetic foot ulcers and chronic wounds have recently entered first-in-human trials. The first, the WoundWand Debridement Device (ArthroCare), uses radiofrequency energy to gently and precisely dissolve soft tissue, while the second, a novel Limb Recovery System (Osprey Medical), delivers a high concentration of antibiotics via percutaneous isolated limb perfusion to the foot only.
