The WHSI Conference is two days of presentations and networking opportunities from experts from every sector in wound care, healing, and amputation prevention. Our non-profit connects clinicians and researchers with science, technology, and pharmaceutical thought leaders. Conference attendees spend two days engaging in thoughtful discussions that spark innovation in wound healing and amputation prevention.

Attend presentations on these innovations in wound healing

3D Bioprinting and Fat Grafting for the Treatment of Chronic Diabetic Foot Ulcers

Researchers, academics, and surgeons will present research and application of smart diagnostics and improved wound healing using advanced techniques. Presenters include:

  • Research directors
  • Foot and ankle specialists
  • Podiatric surgeons
  • Academics

Bringing together perspectives from every sector of wound care and amputation prevention during presentations inspires innovative conversations during the follow-up networking events. Find new research with applications and potential in exciting aspects of wound care for diabetic foot ulcers and more.

BTK Interventions: What is Optimal for Limb Salvage

Lawrence Garcia, the Chief Interventional Section Professor at Tufts University School of Medicine, presents below-the-knee interventions and revascularization strategies to improve limb preservation outcomes.

Attend this Friday morning session to learn about innovations in vascular interventions for BTK wounds. Connect with other conference attendees to learn about new standards in interventions to improve outcomes for limb salvage in cases with progressive gangrene, rapidly enlarging wounds, or continuous ischemic pain.

Electrical Regulation of Inflammatory Responses in Wound Healing

With the rise of the IoT, wound treatment is experiencing ongoing innovations, including smart dressings to enhance limb preservation. This presentation is from Min Zhao, MD, a professor in the Department of Dermatology at UC Davis.

Learn more about how long-lasting and regulated smart dressings for electrical field direction can optimize inflammatory regulation, including capillary density, wound oxygenation, and fibroblast activity.

Following every session, there are networking opportunities for other conference attendees and presenters to get more information about the topics and applications.

Smart Thermal Imaging Applications to Preserve Diabetic Limb Health

On Saturday afternoon, attend a presentation from the founder of Revealix about smart imaging processes for diabetic limb preservation. This real-time imaging software allows physicians to screen and stratify patients based on objective and personalized foot health risks.

As a non-profit, the WHSI Conference can bring together academics, clinicians, tech leaders, and researchers on the same platform, so they can make connections that generate the next generation of innovations.

The smart thermal imaging applications of Revealix are just one of the presentations on how modern technology and the IoT are transforming wound care.

Therapeutic Targeting of Keap1/Nrf2 in Wound Healing

The Director of Composite Tissue Allotransplantation at NYU Langone Health gives one of the last presentations of the conference on targeting Keap1/Nrf2. Gene therapy is one of the latest innovations in accelerating diabetic wound healing.

Using topical siRNA-based therapy on skin with oxidative stress is possible using a novel liposome and protein hybrid nanoparticle system. In a humanized murine diabetic model, the optimized stable lipoproteoplex formulation successfully delivered siRNA targeting Keap1, one of the critical repressors of Nrf2, a regulator of redox mechanisms.

Register for the WHSI Conference for the latest innovations in wound healing from thought leaders in amputation prevention.

WHSI gives innovators in tech and science the same platform as clinicians, researchers, and academics working in wound care and amputation prevention. Our conferences are vigorous exchanges of ideas focused on developing a world without amputation; during the two days, presentations from thought leaders alternate with networking opportunities to begin ongoing conversations about the capabilities of combining leading research and technology with clinical applications.
