Offering includes six skin-friendly materials that can be incorporated into original equipment manufacturers’ wound care ranges.
CHICAGO – April 18, 2018 – Vancive Medical Technologies™, an Avery Dennison (NYSE:AVY) business, today announced it will offer six advanced wound care materials for private labeling by medical device original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). The announcement was made as Vancive prepares to join thousands of wound care professionals and suppliers at two events this spring, including the Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) and the European Wound Management Association (EWMA) annual conference.
Vancive invites OEMs and distributors to schedule appointments online or stop by booth #1307 at SAWC Spring 2018, April 25-29 in Charlotte, N.C., or booth #D26 at EWMA 2018, May 9-11 in Kraków, Poland.
“We will be available to discuss how our advanced wound care materials can help OEMs to broaden their own ranges,” said Deepak Prakash, senior director of global marketing, Vancive Medical Technologies. “We also welcome opportunities to meet with global distributors and discuss how we can partner with them to deliver innovative wound care technologies that can benefit healthcare practitioners and patients.”
At SAWC and EWMA, Vancive will focus on highlighting the following six products:
Silicone wound contact layer: This is a low adherent, non-irritating, porous, nonwoven fabric coated with a soft silicone adhesive. It can remain on a wound for several days.
Thin absorbent wound dressing: Featuring Thin Absorbent Skin Adhesive™ (TASA™) technology, this dressing material is conformable, exceptionally thin (0.12 mm) and absorbent. Indicated for lightly to moderately exudating wounds, it also is transparent, allowing for wound site visibility and fewer dressing changes.
Odor-absorbing hydrocolloid: Made with a next-generation adhesive formulation, this hydrocolloid remains intact on the wound, aiding in removal. With odor-control delivered through cyclodextrins, this hydrocolloid is available in standard and bordered options as well as square and sacral sizes.
Superabsorbent dressing: With a superabsorbent polymer core, this dressing is designed to handle moderate to heavy wound exudate. It may remain on a wound for extended periods (up to seven days).This product is also available with a perforated soft silicone adhesive border that adheres well to the skin but releases gently.
Silicone adhesive coated polyurethane foam: This multi-layered adherent silicone foam dressing is available for use in flat foam dressings or bordered dressings for management of moderate to heavily exudating wounds. Its polyurethane top layer, which can be printed with OEM branding, acts as a bacteria barrier while allowing moisture vapor transfer.
Barrier film spray and swab: This barrier film is applied on the skin and then dries quickly to form a breathable coating. It is designed to protect intact or damaged skin from bodily fluids, tape trauma and friction.
