The future of ODIN 1®: Research in development

Extensive research and investigation is underway as BRC anticipates the next wave of clinical indications of use for the ODIN 1®. While treating the pain of these conditions is the currently cleared indication of use, BRC’s goal is to expand its indication of use for the treatment of these conditions:

A deeper look: the potential of ODIN 1® in wound healing

In an open wound, an electrical potential gradient is created in part by the pH gradient that occurs between the base of the wound and the skin.

This voltage potential causes a current of injury to occur which in turn attracts cells that migrate (via electrotaxis) into the wound and repair the damage. These cells consist of fibroblasts, which produce the collagen fibers used to build scar and connective tissue, macrophages and neutrophils that both initiate the inflammatory response to fight infection and ingest bacteria, and epidermal stem cells that replace missing and damaged tissue in the regeneration process.

It is hypothesized that the ODIN 1® constant reference current may help to 1) restore the current of injury, 2) generate more ATP which is required to power this process, and 3) increase nitric oxide to boost blood flow and oxygenation to the site of injury and facilitate the healing process.
