Packaging requirements for PICO Single Use Negative Pressure Wound Therapy have continually changed since first launch in 2011 and the packaging configuration has evolved in tandem.
Part of the challenge was to design-out weight and volume from the packaging at each stage of product modification.
The first phase of this project achieved a 49% reduction in the overall packaging weight, with 2014 expectations to see this rise to 60%.
The dimensions of the packaging have also been reduced, resulting in a 43% reduction in volume, enabling more efficient shipping and handling. This also reduces the amount of packaging that our customers need to recycle.
