Avance® Negative Pressure Wound Therapy

Introducing Avance® NPWT System


Maximizes the benefits of NPWT while minimizing pain and trauma

Avance NPWT system with Safetac® technology is clinically proven to minimize unnecessary patient pain and stress.1


  • Safetac technology is unique proprietary technology exclusive to Mölnlycke. Dressings with Safetac technology are atraumatic upon removal.2 These dressings minimize trauma to the wound and the surrounding skin, which reduces pain to the patient. The risk of maceration is lessened by sealing the wound margins and high MVTR.3
