Less pain with Avance

Avance with Safetac – Minimizing pain and stress to maximize healing

Avance® NPWT system with Safetac® is designed to minimize unnecessary pain and stress1.

Avance is a negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) system that is specifically designed to be more convenient for healthcare professionals and patients. The system covers all wound types, whether in hospital or at home, which means an easier transition for patients. Reduced training needs for nurses also means cost and time savings.

Fixation dressings with Safetac are easy to work with and apply or reapply as needed. This helps minimize unnecessary contact with the patient's sensitive wound site2, and can help minimize their anxiety.

Mepiseal®, an easy-to-use, soft, liquid silicone sealant, maintains an effective seal, essential for the delivery of NPWT. Adhering effectively, Mepiseal prevents exudate from spreading, yet is removed with no skin stripping or pain3.
