The 3-in-1 solution
for hard to heal wounds.
What is VACUTEX™?
VACUTEX™ is a special type of wound dressing that consists of a patented 3-layer structure of Polyester and Polyester-Cotton filaments, that mechanically works as a low level “pump” through capillary action. It is not identical to Negative Pressure Wound Therapy, but has an autologous mechanism similar to NPWT. VACUTEX™ can be used for hard to heal wounds with moderate to heavy amounts of exudate and slough.
How it works
What are the benefits?
VACUTEX™ facilitates the healing of hard to heal wounds, by improving oxygen levels and reducing exudate and oedema levels in and around hard to heal wounds.
Significant reduction of superficial and deeper oedema in and around the wound. Reducing oedema will improve the microcirculation and the blood supply in and around the wound, creating a significant faster wound healing process. As long as there is oedema in and around the wound, the wound will never heal completely.
Elevation of the local (1mm) and deeper (3-6mm) oxygen levels in and around the wound. This will improve the oxygenation of the wound tissue and granulation tissue will be created faster.
The effects of VACUTEX™ mentioned above will have a positive impact on the Tissue Hemoglobin Index in the blood in the wound area. This will increase the oxygenation in the wound area that will further improve the wound healing process.
VACUTEX™ contributes to the mechanical debridement of the wound By removing debris out of the wound. VACUTEX™ will help to create the necessary wound bed preparation to achieve an optimal wound healing process.
