Minimising pain and stress to maximise healing

Pain and stress delays wound healing.1 Thanks to dressings with Safetac® technology, Avance® is an NPWT system that helps prevent unnecessary pain and skin trauma.

Mepiseal®, the flexible, easy-to-use sealant moulds to the skin, forming a seal that prevents exudate from spreading.

Perfect when you need increased adhesion and a better seal, such as for difficult to dress wound areas. Mepiseal adheres effectively, yet is removed with no skin stripping or pain.

The Avance® Film with Safetac® technology causes less skin reactions and pain during dressing removal, which means improved patient comfort.

Prevent unnecessary pain

Studies show that dressings with Safetac® technology are atraumatic, and can effectively minimise pain for patients and trauma for difficult to treat wounds and peri-wound areas.2

Having Mepitel as a contact layer between the foam and the wound bed, reduces tissue in-growth into the foam and minimises pain during dressing removal.

Using the Avance® Film with Safetac® technology reduces skin stripping, and skin reactions – and minimises the pain during removal due to the unique Safetac technology properties.

The Avance NPWT system with Safetac prevents unnecessary pain. Less pain and optimised sealing promotes better patient compliance, an important consideration in successful healing.
