SNAP™ Therapy System – Helps Preserve Patient Quality of Life 1

The SNAP™ Therapy System is indicated for patients who would benefit from wound management via the application of negative pressure, particularly as the device may promote wound healing through the removal of small amounts of excess exudate, infectious material, and tissue debris.
An innovative, portable design that delivers negative pressure wound therapy
without the need for electrical power.
  • Proprietary spring mechanism generates consistent, even levels of pressure
  • Small, disposable and lightweight design can be easily hidden under clothes
  • BIOLOCK™ Technology gels exudate for fluid containment
  • Visual indicator displays when cartridge is full or discharged
  • -125mmHg pressure setting
 
SNAP™ Advanced Dressing
Proprietary hydrocolloid dressing offers periwound protection & easy removal.
  • Advanced hydrocolloid assists with maintaining a seal in the presence of exudate or sweat to help reduce periwound maceration
  • Fully integrated microport enables a tight bending radius for wounds located in difficult-to- treat areas
  • Cut-to- length tubing and dressings that can be trimmed allow for improved patient customization
  • Integrated one-way flow valve helps keep exudate fully contained and away from the wound
  • 10cm x 10cm, 15cm x 15cm and SNAP™ Bridge Dressing options available
 
SNAP™ Bridge Dressing
  • Integrated bridge and port for one-step application
  • Soft, skin-friendly cushioning under bridge for improved patient comfort and to help minimise the risk of pressure points
 
Foam Wound Interface
  • Reticulated, hydrophobic open-cell blue foam interface (19mm thickness)
  • Facilitates even levels of negative pressure 3
  • Hydrophobic construction helps exudate removal 3

Indications for Use

Before use, physicians should review complete risk information and essential prescribing information which can be found in the Instructions for Use.
 
The SNAP™ Therapy System is indicated for patients who would benefit from wound management via the application of negative pressure, particularly as the device may promote wound healing through the removal of excess exudate, infectious material and tissue debris. The SNAP™ System is indicated for removal of small amounts of exudate from chronic, acute, traumatic, subacute and dehisced wounds, partial-thickness burns, ulcers (such as diabetic, venous or pressure), surgically closed incisions, flaps and grafts.
