Another Portable NPWT Technology Targets Affordability

In short

EquinoxO2 Medical, LLC, developer of negative pressure wound therapy (npwt) foam dressings and pump systems, has announced development and US distribution of its HALO XP npwt pump system.


Management of chronic, non healing or untreated wounds remains a challenge for healthcare professionals the world over, not least because of the significant cost involved and the ever-increasing number of elderly and diabetic patients. Negative Pressure Wound Therapy has become more or less an accepted treatment for specific types of wound, to the extent that companies like Smith & Nephew have invested significant efforts in bringing their own offerings to market, such as their recently FDA cleared PICO system, covered in January on our pages. ¬†Similarly we reported the FDA’s extension of Kinetic Concepts Inc.’s V.A.C Therapy to encompass surgical incisions as recently as last month here.

Like S&N’s PICO, EquinoxO2 says its HALO XP was designed for ambulatory patients, being a light weight and portable system that combines advanced technology with easy-to-use features. The company says its new portable npwt pump was created to provide an affordable option to patients and healthcare facilities.
