InfoV.A.C.® Therapy Unit

Searching for better wound care

InfoV.A.C. is an NPWT device designed to achieve better outcomes in the management of acute, traumatic and chronic wounds in a clinical environment.

The Integrated V.A.C. Therapy System is a proven, noninvasive, advanced approach to wound healing. The System uses an intelligent therapy unit to deliver controlled negative (sub-atmospheric) pressure to the wound site. Specialized foam dressings, applied to the wound site, ensure that fluid is continuously drawn away from the wound and SensaT.R.A.C. Technology manages the equal distribution of pressure across the wound area.
 

Features

Fast
Ease and speed of use are greatly enhanced with features such as full color touch screens, electronic seal checking and automated wound measurement.

  • Intuitive software – touch screens and fully re-programmed menu system
  • Click-fit canister application – for rapid, hygienic, fitting and removal
  • Aural and visual application guidance system – distinctive alarms are supported by clear on-screen guidance explaining the current problem and demonstrating the steps required for rapid rectification
  • Long battery life – all aspects of the unit have been engineered to save time

Effective
Detailed therapy history recording and feedback collates wound management and progression information.

  • Detailed course of therapy history recording – you can upload wound images via a USB stick or memory card. Using the supplied touch screen pen, you can then trace the wound and the therapy unit will automatically calculate the wound size (and volume if you input the depth)
  • Anti-clog technology – the 3D multi-channel profile of SensaT.R.A.C. minimizes blocking and clogging

Quality Of Life
The Seal Check™ and SensaT.R.A.C. technology, combined with information-rich alarms improve patient comfort and reduces distress.

  • Skin-soft conformable SensaT.R.A.C. – the structure of the pad presents a large surface area of even pressure to the wound, offering a comfortable fit and minimizes the risk of pressure damage to the skin
  • Night mode – sleep and rest are not interrupted by the dimmed screen and the near silent operation of the unit
  • Odor control - the exudates management system controls strong odors

Cost Effective
V.A.C. Therapy delivers lower hospitalization costs and reduced costs of nursing time when compared with using moist gauze15.

  • Cost effective – only 3% of wound management costs relate to dressings. The rest sits mostly in nursing time and hospital costs4
  • The speed and efficacy of the integrated V.A.C. Therapy System cuts these costs
