Treatment utilizing PICO sNPWT

The PICO System is a small, portable device that applies negative pressure wound therapy for a variety of closed surgical incisions to aid in reducing the risk of surgical site complications (SSCs).

Backed by our indications

The PICO System is the first Negative Pressure Wound Therapy System, to be indicated to aid in the reduction of the incidence of both superficial and deep incisional SSIs for high-risk patients, in Class I and Class II wounds, post-operative seroma and dehiscence on closed surgical incisions.*
