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 Negative Pressure Wound Therapy Systems, V.A.C.® Therapy has become the clinicians' 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.
**As of June 2016, more than 10M wounds have been treated worldwide with the V.A.C.® Therapy System.
