Acelity Announces Availability of TIELLE® Non Adhesive in Europe
May 19 15
Acelity announced that TIELLE® Non Adhesive, a new and improved foam dressing, is now available in Europe. TIELLE® Non Adhesive is the first in an enhanced range of TIELLE® hydropolymer foam dressings incorporating new design and materials to better meet patient needs and help provide a comfortable and effective healing environment for all types of wounds. The TIELLE® Non Adhesive, part of the TIELLE® Family range, is intended to manage a range of exudate levels, while retaining more fluid than other foam dressings. The result is a cover dressing that is more comfortable and easier for a patient to wear. The TIELLE® Non Adhesive dressing is a polyurethane foam dressing that can be cut to size, and is designed to help maintain a moist wound healing environment through the combination of superior fluid handling, moisture vapor transmission and flexibility. The design allows up to seven days wear time without leakage, depending on the level of exudate. This may significantly reduce the number of dressing changes. TIELLE® Non Adhesive dressing is composed of three layers: the original LiquaLock® absorbent layer, which locks fluid away to reduce the risk of maceration and leakage, even under movement and pressure exerted by compression bandaging1, a new superabsorbent layer that enhances fluid handling capacity1, and a new highly breathable polyurethane film backing, which also works as a bacterial barrier2. The new design and materials together maximize performance, leading to a 30% increase in Total Fluid Handling Capacity (TFHC)1 and a dressing 40% thinner than the previous version. Responding to customer feedback, the dressings are provided in transparent primary packaging, to aid product selection.
Acelity Announces Nanova™ Therapy System, a New Absorbent Dressing Enhanced with Negative Pressure for Slow-To-Heal Wounds
May 14 15
Acelity announced that Nanova™ Therapy System, a new absorbent dressing enhanced with negative pressure for slow-to-heal wounds, is now available in Europe. The disposable hand-activated Nanova™ Therapy Unit can be used up to 30 days with multiple dressings, providing an easy-to-use, cost-effective way for clinicians to continue negative-pressure wound therapy (NPWT) outside the hospital setting. Weighing only 7.2g, the Nanova™ Therapy Unit can be carried in a pocket, will not impede patient mobility, and may enable an earlier return to daily activities. In addition, the dressing’s absorbent layer retains exudate, removing the need for a separate fluid reservoir. The dressing incorporates DermaTac™ Protective Seal Technology, which is unique in providing an effective seal, while enabling easy repositioning of the dressing as required. Importantly, in the community setting, the dressing will continue to absorb exudate even in the absence of negative pressure.
