Avance NPWT system

Avance with Safetac – designed to minimize unnecessary patient suffering

Avance® NPWT system with Safetac® is designed to minimize unnecessary patient pain and stress1. Dressings with Safetac prevent skin stripping at dressing changes2,3, and the maceration that can delay healing by causing damage to the peri-wound area4,5,6. They may even prevent blistering7.

Dressings with Safetac are easy to work with and apply or reposition as needed. This helps minimize unnecessary contact with the patient's sensitive wound site, and can help to minimize their anxiety.

Avance is also lightweight, easy to understand and operate, and very quiet – design that contributes to a less stressful NPWT experience day-to-day1.

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

Convenient – one system can be used for all wound types, in hospital or at home

Choice of wound fillers – foam or gauze1

Quiet, lightweight and portable, Avance offers improved patient comfort

Easy-to-use Avance® Film with Safetac can be re-positioned with no loss of adhesion.

Avance now comes with a highly flexible ViewPad for easier dressing application.

The Avance NPWT system is indicated for use with the following wound types:

  •  Traumatic wounds
  • Surgical wounds (sternal/abdominal/extremity)
  • Dehisced wounds
  • Chronic wounds, including pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers and venous leg ulcers
