Sandia researchers are developing inexpensive sensors and lightweight pumps to simplify operation of a unique oxygen-bath system for healing wounds, pressure sores, and pressure ulcers--quickly and with reduced scarring.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.--In the presence of wheelchair-bound Bill "Willie" Shoemaker--America's winningest jockey until he suffered a severe spinal injury in an auto accident in 1991--representatives of the Department of Energy's Sandia National Laboratories signed a $5.76 million cooperative research and development agreement (CRADA) with Northridge, California-based Numotech, Inc., a company that conducts research about wounds and then designs new treatments.
