In 2012, a breakthrough in negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) was launched – the PICO Single Use NPWT System. The PICO 7 System delivers the same level of effective negative pressure as traditional systems – in a canister-free, pocket-sized device.
The revolutionary technology of the dressing allows the PICO 7 System to be canister-free and disposable. This, in turn, enables NPWT to be an option for a wider range of patients in all care settings.
The clinical benefits of NPWT are well established for chronic or dehisced wounds. The easy to use PICO 7 System expands the options for applying NPWT to many wound conditions, as well as closed surgical incisions. PICO 7 is appropriate for:
- Acute wounds
- Chronic wounds
- Closed surgical incisions
- Traumatic wounds
- Sub-acute and dehisced wounds
- Flaps and grafts
- Partial-thickness burns
- Ulcers – diabetic, pressure, leg
