Adiuvo Diagnostics PVT Ltd
PORTABLE HAND HELD DERMASCOPE FOR REAL TIME NON-INVASIVE DETECTION AND MONITORING OF SKIN INFECTIONS USING MULTI-WAVELENGTH UV FLUORESCENCE
Early wound assessment and management is very crucial with the rise in Skin and Soft Tissue Infections (SSTI), ranging from diabetic foot ulcers, surgical site infections, burns, dermatology skin infections etc. Although it was estimated that an ankle is lost to diabetes somewhere in the world every 30 seconds, a more important fact is that up to 85% of all amputations in diabetes should be preventable. Conventional methods of SSTI monitoring are very ineffective. The problem is further compounded in low resource settings due to lack of quality infrastructure. Adiuvo Diagnostics is developing a non-invasive, portable Skin-Scope device to detect, classify major clinically relevant bacteria and fungus causing the infections in real time, and also access the rate of healing within 2 minutes. This will aid the doctors with early and right treatment protocol.
