Advanced Wound Healing by Design
Since its introduction in 1995 (U.S.) / 1994 (Europe), V.A.C.® Therapy has changed the way wounds are healed by NPWT devices. With more published clinical evidence than any other form of Negative Pressure Wound Therapy, V.A.C.Therapy has been prescribed in the treatment of more than 8,000,000 wounds worldwide*.
The integrated V.A.C. Therapy System promotes wound healing through Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT). Delivering negative pressure (a vacuum) at the wound site through a unique, proprietary dressing helps draw wound edges together, removes infectious materials and actively promotes formation of granulation tissue. These Mechanisms of Action (macrostrain, microstrain) lead to fast20 and effective5 wound healing and improved patient’s Quality of Life1 in a cost-effective way3.
With more than seven million wounds treated worldwide* and published in more than 918 peer-reviewed articles, V.A.C. Therapy delivers the clinical and economic outcomes caregivers can trust.
