Pressure Ulcers

About Pressure Ulcers

Acelity designs and manufactures a comprehensive range of products for the management of pressure ulcers. A pressure ulcer, or bed sore, is a localized injury to the skin and/or underlying tissue, usually over a bony prominence. It can result from pressure alone or in combination with shear or friction.
 
Our solutions are built on a deep understanding of wound healing, supported by a large body of clinical evidence.

V.A.C.® Therapy

Acelity provides a wide range of Negative Pressure Wound Therapy systems for hospital, community or home treatment. Since its launch in 1995, V.A.C.® Therapy has changed the way wounds are managed. Backed by more published clinical evidence than any other Negative Pressure Wound Therapy Systems, V.A.C.® Therapy has become the clinicians' treatment of choice for more than 10 million wounds worldwide.* V.A.C.® Therapy creates an environment that promotes wound healing through the application of negative (vacuum) pressure at the wound site. This helps draw wound edges together, remove infectious materials and promote granulation tissue formation.
