Convatec Group Plc Key Developments

ConvaTec Group Announces U.S. Launch of Foam Lite

ConvaTec Group Plc (ConvaTec) announced the U.S. launch of Foam Lite ConvaTec dressing, a light, flexible silicone foam dressing for managing low to non-exuding chronic and acute wounds. The launch of Foam Lite ConvaTec dressing continues the company's expansion into large, growing segments of advanced wound care, beginning with the successful launch of AQUACEL Foam dressing into the $1.2 billion foam market and most recently with the European launch of the Avelle negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) system into the fast-growing disposable segment of the NPWT market. 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.
