400 BC -- Hippocrates uses vinegar to irrigate open wounds and wrapped dressings around wounds to prevent further injury.
1867 -- Joseph Lister places carbolic acid into open fractures to sterilize the wound and to prevent sepsis.
1890's -- Robert Wood Johnson, co-founder of Johnson & Johnson, produces gauzes and wound dressings sterilized with dry heat, steam, and pressure.
1940 -- Penicillin is first used and ushers in the era of antibiotics.
2017 -- FM Wound Care seeks to develop a bandage that will actively kill bacterria for days or possibly weeks. Preventing infection before it can start.

FM Wound Care’s goal is to provide advanced wound care technologies that solve the complex problems associated with difficult infections.

As bacteria develop antibiotic resistance more rapidly, new mechanisms need to be developed that attack in innovative ways at the point of infection. Quick and complete destruction of active bacterial colonies may be one of the keys to slowing the development of antibiotic resistance.

We are focused on cell respiration and disruption of the basic cellular metabolism in order to cause rapid wound sterilization. The key is to develop consistent release of free radicals that disrupt a bacterium's ability to live and reproduce.

While we are focused on treating infection, we desire to provide cost effective solutions for the prevention of infection as well. The key to prevention is creating an environment conducive to healing and detrimental to initial bacterial colonization.

Our core self-sterilizing technology is being applied to wound dressings of various sizes and configurations. This novel material does not require a change in treatment methods. The bandages and supplies for treating cuts and abrasions are made from materials that actively eradicate bacteria. This technology is specifically engineered to prevent infection and provide safer and more effective treatment in chronic and acute injuries.
