4SM go to CCR and Medica

4SM ventured out to the world of cosmetic surgery, looking at everything from competing machines and procedures to consumables and “widgets” to include in our development pathway. The Clinical Cosmetic & Reconstructive (CCR) Expo and MEDICA gave us an amazing platform to showcase our technology, meet potential customers, partners and helped to gauge competition.

The Royal Academy of Engineering has identified seven of the most promising inventors based in UK universities and is supporting them to turn their research into spin-out companies.

The researchers have been awarded up to £85,000 of funding through the Royal Academy's Enterprise Hub to spend the next 12 months exclusively developing a spin-out business based on their innovations.

One key technology 4SM are investigating is plasma technology. Capable of producing chemicals including nitric oxide and other radicals that can sterilise and deactivate bacteria and heal wounds, the temperature and surface energy delivery of plasma technologies can also be controlled in order to reduce epidermal and superficial dermal thickness.

The team recently created a hand-held plasma device, which can remove the upper layer of dermis and sterilise skin treatment areas. Application of the technology includes wrinkle removal and fine line reductions, treatment of diabetic ulcers and open wounds as well as trauma-related operations like managing acute bleeding.

Dr Tom Frame, founder and CEO of 4SM said, "We have had significant results across a range of histopathology studies and microbiology evaluation, which demonstrates a high level of efficacy across our commercial applications."
