PICO Single Use Negative Pressure Wound Therapy is a negative pressure wound therapy system that raises the level of care:
- Indicated for use on closed surgical incisions and open wounds
- Manages low to moderate levels of exudate[1-3]
- Delivers compression-like therapy to the wound, wound margin and periwound
- Canister-free and portable, which can help improve patient mobility and increase[5-6] satisfaction rates
- Provides therapy for up to 14 days with PICO 14 and 7 days with PICO 7/7Y
- Waterproof dressing, allowing patients the ability to shower
