AURA-WAVE (Sairem)

AURA-WAVE is an Electron Cyclotron Resonance (ECR) coaxial plasma source. It has been designed to be self-adapted once the plasma ignited. A magnetic field combined to the electromagnetic wave allows the creation of plasma at low pressure due to Electron Cyclotron Resonance. AURA-WAVE microwave plasma source has been designed to sustain microwave plasma over several decades of pressure, i.e. from 10⁻⁴ mbar to a few 10⁻² mbar and from a few watts depending on the gas.

System and method for treating surfaces of bodies, in particular for wound treatment

The invention relates to a system for treating surfaces of bodies, in particular a vacuum dressing, comprising at least one attachment means (5a) for fluidic attachment of a negative-pressure generator for generating a negative pressure in a volume that can be positioned at the surface of a body, and at least one means for plasma generation (8, 8a, 15) with which the volume in which the negative pressure can be generated can be at least partially filled with plasma or a plasma-activated medium.

Device, system, and method for antimicrobial treatment, method for producing the device, and computer program

The invention relates to a device, to a system, and to a method for antimicrobial treatment during performance of operations in bodies, to a method for producing the device, and to a computer program. A device (11) is provided for antimicrobial treatment during performance of operations, in particular minimally invasive operations, in bodies. Said device comprises a main body (1) for partial introduction into a body and at least one plasma source (12) arranged in at least one portion of the main body (1).

Device for biologically decontaminating percutaneous access points and method therefor

Disclosed is a device (1) for biologically decontaminating percutaneous access points or the stomata of patients, by means of a plasma generator (4) for generating a decontaminating plasma adjacently to a treatment surface (3) of the plasma generator (4). In order to at least partially surround a percutaneous access point or stomata, the treatment surface (3) is curved to be adaptable and can be laid against the percutaneous access point or stomata.
