Cutting-edge nanotechnology that heals wounds

Non-healing wounds affect millions of patients globally

1 in 50 people has a non-healing wound during their lifetime

We all know somebody who has suffered from a wound that didn't heal and know the detrimental impact it has on their life. Despite many approaches to make such wounds heal faster, they remain one of the biggest problems in modern medicine. A problem that is getting worse every day: Chronic illnesses such as diabetes are on the rise and prevent the body from healing properly. Additionally, antibiotic-resistant bacteria are becoming the new norm and cause untreatable infections.

Our nanoparticles make tissue heal

Our solution features anti-inflammatory, tissue regenerative, and antimicrobial properties

At ETH Zurich and Empa St. Gallen, we have developed mixed metal oxide nanoparticles that stimulate regeneration in close collaboration with leading clinicians in the field. Applied directly onto the wound, they mimic human enzymes to reduce inflammation, kill microbes upon contact, and stimulate the formation of new tissue. This way, the wound heals faster and better, enabling patients to return to their normal lives earlier and at a lower risk.

Our mission

Poorly healing wounds are a massive burden for patients, health care systems, and the economy. An aging society, the rise of diabetes and antibiotic resistances are bound to increase the problem. The last decades have brought little improvement in the field – most products focus on structure restoration or contain expensive biologics.

 

We believe it's time for a change.

 

After decades of research, nanotechnology is mature enough to step into the breach and disrupt the wound care market.

Management Team

We are an interdisciplinary team with backgrounds in nanoscience, engineering, life science, and business administration. Our product is developed in close collaboration with surgeons and leading medical experts.
