Wearable photo dynamic therapy system said to improve patient experience in addressing acne, psoriasis and AK. French scientists at Texinov Medical Textiles have developed a knitted laser fabric that can treat skin diseases such as acne, psoriasis, and actinic keratosis with light. Knitted laser fabric can treat skin diseases. Fluxmedicare has been developed in collaboration with a pan-European health consortium PHOS-ISTOS. Following successful clinical trials, the painless laser fabric will be the quickest device to the market, says the developer, which adds that the laser bandage “will be used to eradicate unwanted skin conditions, with no side effects”. Initially developed to improve the treatment of actinic keratosis (AK) – rough, scaly patches on the skin that develop from years of exposure to the sun – the light emitting textile is said to “be able to treat and even cure a number of skin complaints such as acne, Paget’s disease, psoriasis, and other diseases like baby jaundice”. ‘Laser fabric’ treats skin diseases
