ConvaTec Inc. Key Developments

ConvaTec Launches Foam Lite™ ConvaTec Dressing, Expanding its Foam Portfolio for Wide Variety of Wounds

ConvaTec announced the launch of Foam Lite™ ConvaTec dressing, expanding the company's portfolio of silicone foam dressings and providing customers with a broad range of advanced dressings for the management of a wide variety of chronic and acute wounds. Foam Lite™ ConvaTec dressing is a thin, flexible foam dressing developed specifically for managing low to non-exuding wounds, such as skin abrasions, skin tears and partial thickness burns, which do not require the absorbency of regular foam dressings. The new dressing complements ConvaTec's range of AQUACEL® Foam dressings for moderately exuding wounds. Foam Lite™ ConvaTec dressing was developed, alongside its successful line of AQUACEL® Foam dressings, to help its customers address the challenges of wound care that they see every day -- protecting fragile skin, defending against infection and nurturing with a moist wound healing environment and to help their patients resume their daily lives. Foam Lite™ ConvaTec dressing is a thin foam dressing with a breathable film and perforated, gentle silicone adhesive. The new dressing is flexible and conforms to the body even in awkward positions or places such as elbows, wrists, knees and ankles. The skin-friendly silicone adhesive is easy to apply, re-position and remove; it will not stick to gloves or to itself, and is designed to be non-damaging (atraumatic) to the wound and periwound skin upon dressing removal. The soft foam layer is designed to absorb low levels of exudate and help maintain a moist wound healing environment. The soft-to-touch outer film provides a protective barrier against water, bacteria and viruses.

ConvaTec Announces the UK Launch of Avelle Negative Pressure Wound Therapy System

ConvaTec announced the UK launch of the Avelle Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) System, the company's entry into the $1.7 billion negative pressure market. The innovative Avelle System is the first to combine negative pressure wound therapy with the benefits of AQUACEL Technology. The Avelle System delivers negative pressure wound therapy in a simple, canister-less system, allowing flexibility across different care settings. The small, ergonomically-shaped pump fits within a pocket and runs quietly for added discretion. The disposable pump also has a 30 day lifetime giving the option of extended wear and therapy, and an economic advantage over pumps with shorter lifetimes. The Avelle System incorporates the Avelle dressing that is powered by AQUACEL® Technology which helps prevent periwound maceration, a potential complication associated with NPWT that can lead to delayed healing. AQUACEL® is ConvaTec's proprietary technology that is designed to help create a beneficial moist wound environment for healing. The Avelle System's lightweight, portable and easy-to-use design enables patients to have enhanced mobility, helping them resume their daily activities, both in and out of the home, as their wounds heal. The Avelle System can be used on a broad range of low to moderately-exuding wound types, including chronic, acute, traumatic, sub-acute and dehisced wounds, skin grafts, and surgically closed incisions.
