Antimicrobial blue light (aBL) is an attractive option for managing biofilm burden at the skin-implant interface of percutaneous osseointegrated (OI) implants. However, marketed aBL devices have both structural and optical limitations that prevent them from being used in an OI implant environment. They must be handheld, preventing even irradiation of the entire skin-implant interface, and the devices do not offer sufficient optical power outputs required to kill biofilms. We present the developmental process of a unique aBL device that overcomes these limitations. Four prototypes are detailed, each being a progressive improvement from the previous iteration as we move from proof-of-concept to in vivo application. Design features focused on a cooling system, LED orientation, modularity, and “sheep-proofing”. The final prototype was tested in an in vivo OI implant sheep model, demonstrating that it was structurally and optically adequate to address biofilm burdens at the skin-implant of percutaneous OI implants. The device made it possible to test aBL in the unique OI implant environment and compare its efficacy to clinical antibiotics–data which had not before been achievable. It has provided insight into whether or not continued pursual of light therapy research for OI implants, and other percutaneous devices, is worthwhile. However, the device has drawbacks concerning the cooling system, complexity, and size if it is to be translated to human clinical trials. Overall, we successfully developed a device to test aBL therapy for patients with OI implants and helped progress understanding in the field of infection management strategies.
