Versatile 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 capable of delivering therapy even when kinked, twisted or compressed.2

Convenient and fast – simplified dressing application with the same technique across various wound types; shown to be faster than traditional hard port dressings.1,3

Effective – Designed to be resistant to blockages caused by kinks, twists or compression.2

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

RENASYS-F Polyurethane Foam features an open cell structure and hydrophobic material properties, intended to allow efficient fluid management.4 Foam dressing kits are suitable for outpatient use, and can be cut to fit the size and shape of the wound.

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

  • Easy to apply, and easy to train clinical teams in their use
  • Low adherent
  • In a study, patients reported no pain on application or removal, contributing to low use of analgesia.
