About Acute & Traumatic Wounds

Acelity provides a range of products that are designed to help heal acute and traumatic wounds. 

Acute wounds are disruptions to the integrity of the skin and underlying tissues that have been present for less than 30 days. Surgical incisions are a good example.

Traumatic wounds result from injury to hard and/or soft tissue. Traumatic wounds include partial thickness burns and orthopedic wounds, as well as damage to bone, muscle, ligaments and tendons. 

The Science Behind Our Therapies

V.A.C.® Therapy

Acelity provides a wide range of Negative Pressure Wound Therapy systems for hospital, community or home treatment. Since its launch in 1995, V.A.C.® Therapy has changed the way wounds are treated. Backed by more published clinical evidence than any other NPWT Systems, V.A.C.® Therapy has become the clinicians' preference treatment of choice for more than 10 million wounds worldwide.* V.A.C.® Therapy creates an environment that promotes wound healing through the application of negative (vacuum) pressure at the wound site. This helps to draw wound edges together, remove infectious materials and promote granulation.
