Avance NPWT system is less painful

Protect the peri-wound area against maceration1

Dressings with Safetac mean less pain and trauma during dressing changes, with minimized risk of maceration and peri-wound blisters

Proven less skin stripping2,3,4

Avance® Film with Safetac was compared in a recent study with two other leading film dressings for NPWT (B, C) – as well as a hydrocolloid dressing (A) to assess their potential for skin stripping. The dressings were applied to dyed skin test areas on 22 healthy volunteers, and removed four times over a 14-day period. Colour changes to the dye were measured using a chromameter at each removal as an indication of the amount of stratum corneum removed by each dressing. Skin areas treated with Avance Film with Safetac showed the least change in colour, indicating it caused less skin stripping than the other products. Avance Film with Safetac was also associated with fewer skin reactions.
