Non-Healing Wounds


Of the 6 million slow- or non-healing wounds in the US, about half of the complex chronic wounds won’t heal. (Wound Healing Society)

PhotoMed’s Vari-Chrome™ Pro can prompt a restart of non-healing wounds. We focus on restarting healing because objective measures of success, or not, typically become apparent during the first or second visit. Additional visits can accelerate healing.

At only some wavelengths, the wounds reveal new materials as they enter the wound and appear dark. During the visit, granulation frequently begins to subtlety appear.

PhotoMed's team recently integrated a 6Mpx HDR-monochrome camera into the Rapid Discovery System™. The System is now ready for documenting, in real-time, the changes in wounds by a researcher wishing to write a groundbreaking paper.


PhotoMed’s tools and data from its IRB studies can save time and money for future pioneers. PhotoMed’s 18-years of recorded data invite and can help answer fundamental, never-before asked, questions. We’ll share some of our recorded data with an NDA.


Diabetes Facts:

  • 1/2 billion people endure diabetes around the world

  • 30 million in the US have diabetes

  • About 1/2 with diabetes will ultimately develop neuropathy with degrees of loss of sensation, and non-healing wounds

  • Diabetes is the leading cause of amputations in the US

  • PhotoMed's Rapid Discovery System™ reveals the return of sensation lost to diabetes and the restart of non-healing wounds.
