About RENASYS

Powerfully simple

Effective, easy-to-use negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT)

RENASYS System addresses the increasing clinical need for traditional negative pressure wound therapy (tNPWT) with an intuitive, one-device solution for continuous or variable intermittent therapy across a wide range of acute, chronic and surgical wound types.1,2 RENASYS TOUCH tNPWT is uncomplicated and easy-to-learn with proven clinical performance.1-3

With the prevalence of wounds growing, 39% of which are unlikely to heal within a year,*4 the demand for tNPWT is growing where budgets are not. RENASYS tNPWT has been shown to deliver clinical benefits while supporting cost-effectiveness, compared to conventional wound therapy.4

One device for all wound care settings

Optimises clinical outcomes, without the complexity

Clinical efficacy: RENASYS TOUCH tNPWT has demonstrated a 55% reduction in wound area, an 80% reduction in wound volume, and a 20% increase in healthy, viable tissue.**1

Easy to learn: Due to the Intuitive touchscreen and interface, 97% of clinicians found RENASYS TOUCH easy to set up and over 90% were satisfied with the device functionality.1

Versatile, individualised therapy: RENASYS TOUCH tNPWT provides an adjustable compression rate which allows clinicians to tailor therapy to individual patient needs and comfort.1

High patient satisfaction: Small, lightweight and portable, with 91% of patients reporting RENASYS TOUCH tNPWT as comfortable.1,5

Why use negative pressure wound therapy?

The need for NPWT is estimated to grow, with annual acute and chronic wound prevalence estimated to be 9% and 12% respectively,4 so we’re always aiming to make solutions more cost-effective. It’s important to understand the clinical benefits NPWT can provide:

  • Stimulates development of granulation tissue formation8-11 and helps reduce oedema in partial thickness burns12,13
  • Promotes moisture balance in the wound bed8, 10, 12,13
  • Removes exudate from the wound site1,14 and assists wound contraction13,14
  • Helps to increase vascular perfusion15,16 and promotes proliferation of epithelial cells.6 May decrease dressing changes compared to standard care by promoting drainage management1,8

Clinical results driven by technology

The PICO Single Use Negative Pressure Wound Therapy System provides fully portable single-use NPWT for up to 14 days.***19,20 Recommended in best practice guidelines for high-risk patients on closed surgical incisions by the UK’s National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).21

For wound infection, the RENASYS System can be used with ACTICOAT Antimicrobial Barrier Dressings with nanocrystalline silver technology.

Adaptable Consumables

Adaptable consumables

A simplified range of consumables to meet your patients’ needs

Complex choices in tNPWT consumables can present usage and procurement challenges in the healthcare system. The RENASYS tNPWT Soft Port, foam and gauze range facilitates tailored therapy, with comfort and versatility, in treating challenging wounds.  

Soft Port

 Featuring a soft, cushioned channel to help enhance patient comfort, compared to a hard port,1 and capable of delivering therapy even when kinked, twisted or squashed.2

Convenient and fast – Simplified dressing application with the same technique across various wound types; shown to be faster than traditional hard port dressings1,3 

Effective –Designed to be resistant to blockages caused by kinks, twists or compression2

Versatile – Can be applied to awkward body contours such as elbows, knees, heels and hips,2 with minimal pain on application and removal.2,3

May reduce the need for bridging techniques,2 with 84% of clinicians rating it easier to apply than hard port alternatives.3 76% of clinicians rated it easier to remove.3

Foam and gauze

Evidence has demonstrated that overall healing rates* are similar with both foam and gauze.4-6

 RENASYS-F Polyurethane Foam
features an open cell structure and hydrophobic material properties, intended to allow efficient fluid management.4

 RENASYS-G Gauze is effective in wounds with low to moderate drainage, absorbing and retaining fluid through hydrophilic fibres. Not for use on wounds with high levels of exudate, unless paired with a drain.4

Factors to consider when selecting an appropriate filler4

Drains

RENASYS Drain Kits are designed to enhance treatment and facilitate exudate removal from complex wounds, with a practical silicone construction and radiopaque strip for visualisation under x-ray.4

 Multipurpose drain, designed for a wide range of wound types. Particularly effective in shallow wounds, it must be positioned flat and cannot be curled.4

Non-hollow, non-perforated to prevent tissue adherence. Designed for use in sinus tracts, narrow wounds and wounds with tunnelling/undermining.4

 10FR and 19FR drains are designed for deep wounds, areas of undermining and wounds with copious exudate.4

AB abdominal kit

 The RENASYS AB Abdominal Dressing Kit with Soft Port supports management of the open abdomen7  to achieve safe and effective temporary abdominal closure8

  • Shown to achieve a high rate of fascial closure and a relatively low complication rate, compared to other solutions8
  • In a study, 65% of patients achieved fascial closure in an average of 3 days8
  • RENASYS AB was shown to be as effective as ABTHERA™, with comparable levels of fluid management and removal**9
