What is the PICO System?

NPWT systems are known for being big, bulky, difficult to apply and challenging to manage.

The innovation of the PICO System has eliminated these hurdles.1

The benefits of the PICO System include:

  • Provide compression to the surgical area and periwound
  • Increase perfusion and blood flow2
  • Reduce edema, as well as the incidences of hematoma and seroma formations3-5
  • Shown to reduce surgical complications and readmissions2,6

PICO Mode of action
