Application of a BioModulator® for Enhancing the Efficacy of Antibiotics Against Wound Pathogens

By Hosan Kim, Ph.D. 1, Jerry Tennant, MD2, and Mina Izadjoo1

Due to the emergence of antibiotic and multi-drug resistant pathogens, there is a growing need for development of novel and effective antimicrobial therapeutics and devices. Infections have become the greatest threat to the life and recovery of the combat casualty who survives the immediate trauma of the insult. The Tennant BioModulators® generates microcurrent, electrical impulses that are transmitted by electrodes in the device through the skin to interface with the body’s internal peripheral nervous system for various therapeutic intervention. This technology is FDA approved for pain management. Our Study was focused on further evaluation of the handheld Tennant BioModulators® as an antimicrobial therapeutic device.”
