Smith & Nephew are known for treating wounds and are among the leaders of the field. When they released the PICO Negative Pressure Wound Therapy Kit, they provided breakthrough technology in negative pressure wound therapy. Now much smaller and compact, it is easy to carry around without the bulk of a canister to carry around and much more simple to use. Whether you are in the hospital recovering from a surgery or at home going about your daily routine, it is much more comfortable and you hardly notice it with how quiet Smith & Nephew have made this device.
Powered by 2 AA Batteries, it can last for about 7 days, providing you with premium healing around the clock. Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) removes pressure from wounds and incisions areas and keeps them free from harmful bacteria. Not only that, but the 4 layer design absorbs excess liquid, and then evaporates it. This process has been proven not only to reduce the risk of infection, but also to reduce complications from more serious wounds and speed up recovery time. This treatment has been approved for closed incisions, chronic wounds and even open wounds so you can heal more quickly.
If being used post-surgery, it can decrease your hospital stay time and significantly lower your medical bills. Since they are so simple- just dress, press and go- you can keep your independence without support staff changing your dressings. Once treatment is complete, the wound therapy kit is fully disposable. Best of all, it is also the most affordable form for NPWT available.
