Dressing for non-healing toe and forefoot wounds

Devon Medical Products : 10 October, 2013  (New Product)
A new negative pressure wound therapy dressing kit has been designed to suit non-healing wounds on toes and the forefoot
Dressing for non-healing toe and forefoot wounds


Devon Medical has announced the worldwide availability of its foot Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) dressing for treatment of non-healing wounds on the toes and forefoot.



The dressing kit comprises a spoon-shaped nonwoven dressing pad, a transparent polyurethane skin drape, an adhesive polyurethane suction bell with connection tubing, a silicone gel strip pack, and four nonwoven dressings for use between the toes. Caregivers may use antifungal ointment or powder between the toes and petroleum jelly or ointment on the toenails to prevent them from adhering to the skin drape.



“We are ecstatic to add this innovative NPWT dressing to our line of wound care products as we believe it fills a void in patient care,” says Chip Ross, president of Devon Medical. “Caring for wounds on the toes and areas of the feet with negative pressure has traditionally been very difficult, with the challenges being the formation and keeping of a seal throughout treatment as well as skin maceration. We expect our new foot dressing to revolutionize the way caregivers succeed in using negative pressure technology in this anatomical area of the body and hope to give more patients access to the wound healing benefits that NPWT provides.”



Devon Medical has developed various NPWT dressings, including three sizes of oval dressings, a sacral dressing, and an incisional dressing. The foot dressing will be showcased in booth #1432 at the Medtrade conference in Orlando, Florida, from October 8-10.
