RENASYS-F Foam Dressing Kit with Soft Port


As a proven and familiar Negative Pressure Wound Therapy wound filler, Smith & Nephew's RENASYS Foam Dressing Kits are an optimal choice for a wide variety of wound types. As the recognized industry standard, reticulated, open-cell, polyurethane foam dressings are easy to apply and the healing outcomes are proven by years of successful negative pressure use.

Why foam?

Recognized industry standard

  • Foam is the most commonly used dressing in Negative Pressure Wound Therapy. It is easy to apply and appropriate for a wide range of wound types and sizes.

Proven efficacy

  • Foam is proven to address the common treatment goals associated with negative pressure, including reductions in wound dimensions, exudate levels, wound odor, and an improvement in the quality of the wound bed.1

Benefits of foam

  • The hydrophobic, open-pore properties help remove exudate and promote tissue granulation at the cellular level. Foam evenly distributes negative pressure at the wound site, helping to draw the wound edges together and prepare the wound bed for closure.1


flex with handRENASYS-F Foam Dressing Kits may also be used in conjunction with ACTICOAT Flex, an antimicrobial barrier dressing with a Nanocrystalline Silver coating, proven to kill a broad spectrum of pathogens in as little as 30 minutes.1

The use of negative pressure presents a risk of tissue ingrowth into the foam/gauze. Tissue ingrowth may be reduced by lowering therapy pressure, using a wound contact layer or by increasing the frequency of dressing changes.
