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
Our solutions are built on a deep understanding of wound healing, supported by a large body of clinical evidence.
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.
Every wound is different. That is why Acelity provides a comprehensive range of advanced wound dressings to help address each wound’s specific needs. Our product portfolio is the result of over 80 years of experience in developing innovative solutions to help you manage wounds towards healing.
A number of our advanced wound dressings such as PROMOGRAN™ Matrix and PROMOGRAN PRISMA™ Matrix offer antimicrobial benefits to help infected wounds, while our other advanced wound dressings such as ADAPTIC™ Non-Adhering Dressing serve as a gentle silicone wound contact layer. TIELLE™ Hydropolymer Dressings with LIQUALOCK™ Advanced Absorption Technology offer moist wound healing which can be conducive to wound healing.
Education is key to promoting quality of care, particularly when it involves the healthcare community. Our instructional programs – from professional training to continuing education – provide a continuum designed to improve skills and enrich knowledge across all healthcare settings.
