V.A.C.® Therapy Mechanisms of Action
V.A.C.® Therapy creates an environment that promotes wound healing by delivering negative pressure (a vacuum) at the wound site through a proprietary foam dressing, drawing the wound edges together, removing infectious materials, reducing edema, and promoting granulation tissue formation.
When sealed and placed under negative pressure, the dressing conforms to the wound bed.

Proprietary SENSAT.R.A.C.™ Technology
With the use of patented SENSAT.R.A.C.™ Technology, V.A.C.® Therapy Systems are designed to accurately deliver the selected negative pressure at the wound site for optimal healing.
