Smart Scar Care Pad (SSCP)


"Smart Scar Care Pad" is a newly invented padding material for the better control of hypertrophic scar (HS) and Keloid. It consists of a layer of specially designed silicone rubber and a layer of medical silicone gel. In conjunction with pressure therapy, SSCP can evenly distribute pressure on the HS while reducing scar tension and preventing water loss.

Problem addressed

SSCP has a significant therapeutic effect on managing hypertrophic scars after burn injuries, post-surgery, and Keloidal scars.

  • Newly invented pressure padding combining pressure therapy and silicone therapy with the innovative pressurized method by silicone pressure band, the treatment effect, and patient satisfaction are improved in less labor-intensive manners.
  • Specially designed cylindrical studs of silicone rubber with pressure technology can evenly distribute pressure while reducing scar tension.
Key impact
  • Through rigorous randomized controlled trials, it has been proved that the dual effect of the Smart Scar Care Pad is more effective than traditional pressure therapy.
  • For prevention and effective treatment for Hypertrophic scar and keloid.
  • Can be trimmed to conform to different body contours.
  • Comfortable, durable and re-usable.
  • The SSCP was selected as one of the innovative treatments for burns survivors by the International Society for Burn Injury (ISBI) innovation competition on scar management in Burns Open. (Aug 2021)
