Each patient and wound are unique and deserve customized care. Our comprehensive negative pressure wound therapy solutions enable you to provide treatment options based on each patient’s needs.
At 3M, we continue to develop new technologies and therapies designed to make wound healing manageable for you as caregivers and more comfortable for patients around the world.
3M™ V.A.C.® Therapy has been shown to be a successful way to manage wounds for the past 25 years.¹ It has been shown to reduce hospitalization time and the risk of complications¹,², which in turn helps facilitate patient transitions from inpatient to outpatient care settings.
This is the first-ever acrylic and silicone hybrid drape for use with V.A.C.® Therapy and Veraflo Therapy. The forgiving silicone intelligently contours to the patient's body and allows for drape repositioning upon initial placement, while the high-tack acrylic layer provides a tight seal.
