Introducing NPseal®

Improving the lives of surgical patients through negative pressure wound healing takes a pinch of innovation.

Negative Pressure, Positively Simple.

Guard Medical has introduced a new dressing, NPseal, that is revolutionizing the standard of care for surgical patients. This simple, easy-to-use dressing delivers Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) and may promote wound healing while lowering the barriers of high complexity and cost. Numerous peer reviewed studies have demonstrated the utility of NPWT in reducing the risk of surgical site complications. *

Negative Pressure Vs. Dermabond

The patient was satisfied with both scars however he preferred the scar which was dressed with the NPseal® dressing.

With the purpose of evaluating the ease of use and the aesthetic result of the NPseal negative pressure wound therapy device, a direct comparison between Dermabond closure and NPseal negative pressure wound therapy was evaluated. Laparoscopic port site incisions were dressed with either Dermabond or the NPseal negative pressure wound therapy device and aesthetic and functional outcomes were evaluated.
