Actigraft: a new product for wound healing

The Art of Medicine with Dr. Andrew Wilner

Thanks to Robert Snyder, DPM, and Robert Mueller, the General Manger of Reddress, for joining me on "The Art of Medicine with Dr. Andrew Wilner" to discuss "Actigraft," a novel wound healing product. I first heard about Actigraft from a news report that Reddress had donated several hundred units to Ukraine to assist with civilian and military casualties.

An Israeli, Dr. Igal Kushner, invented Actigraft, and his son, Alon Kushnir, now the Reddress CEO, brought it to market. Headquarters are in Florida, and the product is cleared for marketing by the FDA for wound care.

Actigraft is intriguing because it relies on the patient's blood to make a patch that assists in wound healing. As a long-time scuba diver, I trained in hyperbaric medicine. Hyperbaric medicine is used to treat divers who develop the bends, but hyperbarics is also an adjunctive treatment for nonhealing wounds. When I practiced at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, NC, I treated several patients with nonhealing wounds with hyperbaric medicine, so I was interested in learning more about this product.

Please join us for this 20-minute interview where Mr. Mueller shares the history of this new company and Dr. Snyder explains how Actigraft works.
