With three new innovations in NPWT, NEXA® offers more opportunity to transition patients from hospital to the community and reduce the risk of further re-admission due to complications with their wounds:
The Mercury Pump (the green bit) – Nexa’s Dynamic Fluid Pump works by manipulating the outer walls of the tubing, eliminating the risk of fluid contaminating the unit internals. It runs continually, providing therapeutic negative pressure and continuous removal of both air & fluid from the wound site. Exudate can now be removed from the wound even in the event of a leak in the dressing, thereby reducing the potential risk of skin maceration.
A New Smart Flow Connector – The patent-protected SmartFlow™ Connector is located close to the wound. It maintains consistent negative pressure regardless of height variances between the device and dressing.
Ecopouch (a flexible canister) – Since Nexa does not use a traditional air pump to generate negative pressure, it doesn’t need a thick, bulky fluid canister to act as a manifold. The result? The Mercury platform enables fluid to be collected in a novel flexible canister, called an EcoPouch.
