Avance® Film with Safetac® technology

  • Unique proprietary design minimizes patient pain and stress1
  • Prevents skin stripping at dressing changes2, 3
  • Film allows for repositioning to help clinicians achieve a seal with high patient acceptance1
  • Silicone formula helps with sealing of wound margin4
  • High moisture vapor transmission (MVTR) performance. Films with low MVTR may result in maceration from fluid held underneath the dressing5

 

Avance® Foam characteristics

  • Open cell, hydrophobic polyurethane green foam allows for promotion of granulation tissue, mirroring black foam in terms of quantity and granulation tissue characteristics6
  • Higher tensile strength compared to other leading brand black foam, reducing the potential of tearing during dressing changes7
  • Green color allows for easy viewing of wound exudate during therapy6

 

Other features

  • Easy to use transfer pad for connecting dressing to Avance® NPWT device
  • Each kit is provided sterilized (EtO)
  • 2 year shelf life for flexible inventory management
