V.A.C.® Therapy: Leading the Way
Since its 1995 introduction, V.A.C.® Therapy has set the standard for wound care. While a number of other negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) systems have followed in the past 20 years, there's only one V.A.C.® Therapy.
With more than 10 million wounds treated worldwide, 60 randomized controlled trials, 1,300 peer-reviewed articles, and 1,400 published journal articles, V.A.C.® Therapy from KCI has amassed more published clinical evidence than any other NPWT product, and the difference is in the data. Only V.A.C.® Therapy has shown:
80% reduction in risk of readmission1
76% reduction in need of reoperation1
50% shorter healing time2
40% reduction in incidences of surgical dehiscence and infection3
What Sets V.A.C.® Therapy Apart
Proprietary pressure sensing technology from device to wound site
V.A.C.® Therapy is the only NPWT device with proprietary SENSAT.R.A.C.™ Technology, which continuously monitors negative pressure at the wound site and compensates for any changes, maintaining a consistent environment for fluid removal. This was shown in bench testing to:
Provide 90% more accurate delivery of negative pressure4
Remove fluid 98% faster than other NPWT systems5
Remove the same volume of fluid in 15 minutes that other systems require 24 hours to remove5
Detects and notifies when blockages occur using EASYCLEAR PURGE™ Technology
Additionally, V.A.C.® Therapy comes equipped with EASYCLEAR PURGE™ Technology, which provides real-time updates to caregivers and proactively aids in preventing and clearing blockages as they occur.
