HydroHeal is a solution for superficial-partial burn wounds. It’s a burn dressing which is applied as a gel and sealed with a hydrophobic coating. This coating stays on for the duration of a patient’s healing process. It uses a combination of data analysis and naturally-derived ingredients to aid in the healing process.
The dressing is accompanied by a mobile application for patients and a desktop application for clinicians to streamline the monitoring process for each user.
