The SNAP™ Therapy System Helps Preserve Patient Quality of Life1

The SNAP™ Therapy System is indicated for patients who would benefit from wound management via the application of negative pressure, particularly as the device may promote wound healing through the removal of small amounts of excess exudate, infectious material, and tissue debris.
  • Small, disposable, lightweight design can be hidden under clothes
  • Visual indicator displays when cartridge is full or discharged
  • Proprietary spring mechanism generates consistent, even levels of pressure
  • BIOLOCK™ Technology gels exudate for fluid containment
  • -125mmHg pressure setting

 

SNAP™ Advanced Hydrocolloid Dressing

Proprietary hydrocolloid dressing offers periwound protection & easy removal.

  • Absorptive hydrocolloid properties help to maintain seal in the presence of exudate or sweat to help reduce periwound maceration
  • Disposable components with off-the-shelf convenience
  • Fully integrated microport enables flexibility and a tight bending radius for wounds located in difficult areas
  • Cut-to-length tubing and integrated one-way flow


Interface layers

  • Available with a blue foam interface
  • Facilitates even levels of negative pressure3
