UC research tests range of electrical frequencies that help heal chronic wounds
March 3, 2014
Hard-to-heal wounds, like diabetic ulcers, fester because of insufficient blood supply at the wound site. However, the application of an electrical stimulus can promote the growth of blood vessels, and new University of Cincinnati (UC) research examines the best stimulus parameters--such as frequency and magnitude--for successful therapy.
