New - Fungal In Tray Diagnostic Test 

Fungal infections of the foot are caused by a group of fungal micro-organisms called dermatophytes. Dermatophytes can affect the foot in many ways; however, the most common conditions seen are athlete’s foot (also known as Tinea Pedis) and Onychomycosis which is a fungal infection of the toenail. 

 A fungal nail is characterised by:

·         Colour changes

·         Debris underneath the nail

·         Odour

·         Thickening or sometimes thinning of the nail

 Our quick, simple and painless In Tray Fungal Diagnostic Test will be able to detect and diagnose a fungal infection.

 

How it works:

We place a sample of your toe nail into the In Tray and if a fungal infection is present we are able to grow the fungus.  This takes approximately fourteen days.

 

 This shows a positive result for fungal infection

  

NEW HI-TECH TREATMENT FOR FUNGAL INFECTION "CLEARANAIL"

Clearanail is an exciting new product for treating Fungal Nail (Onychomycosis).  The treatment is based on Controlled Micro Penetration (CMP), that makes tiny holes in the nail plate. The holes allow topical treatments to reach the nail bed in much higher concentration levels than otherwise possible.

    Fast - results are usually visible in 2-8 weeks
    Single treatment

     Effective - holes greatly increase the efficacy of treatments
     CMP prevents injury to soft tissue as 'only the nail is penetrated'
     Simple to use 'Fully automated fail safe system'
     Single use component to prevent cross-infection

This new, hi-tech treatment for fungal nail infection, replaces traditional treatment which may not be able to get to the root of the problem; but through Controlled Micro Penetration we can now reach under the nail, safely and painlessly, with this fast effective treatment. 

 

How it works:

The device is computer controlled and is completely safe, painless and quick.  It produces micro holes through the nail without touching the skin beneath.  The holes allow the topical solution to reach the infection without the nail acting as a barrier.  The holes are just 0.4 mm in diameter.
