Looking for experienced road rash patients for a clinical studyMay 10 2012 at 5:06 PM

Hey RAW friends, I have been working with a new formulation of my wound dressing system that is FDA approved as a hydrogel wound dressing. The product is primarily sold to wound and burn clinics but a clinical study I ran two years ago treated a really thin skin wound called a partial thickness donor site which has a cleaner but similar behavior to road rash.
So I was speaking with a doc who is a cyclist who carries the product in his under seat bag and had the misfortune to lay his bike over on a slick curve and he called me excited about being able to just get back o the bike and ride with diminished pain.
So I'm looking to get my info out to some local cyclists and triathlon participants and have a few of you carry the product and in the event of a road rash, apply the wound dressing and then just let me know some details.
This isn't a randomized clinical study and the product is approved. The product is called altrazeal (www.altrazeal.com) and I developed it as a battlefield wound dressing. It's a pouch of white flakes that weighs 5 grams dry and rapidly absorbs wound fluid and blood and forms an intact stretchy dressing full of water that adheres to a wound surface. It's typically carried as an advanced dressing so it's not something you would buy at a pharmacy.
What am looking for is about 20-25 cyclists who ride year round and I especially want to talk to you if you are clumsy and have a propensity for getting injured. I want to provide you with a pouch of the product, instructions on using it and a small form with my contact info. This is a market research study and if you are interested please contact me and I will get you more detailed information to review on the product, the data I would be gathering and any the intended use of the product and the background and history.
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for contacting me if you have the potential to injure yourself on your bike!
