CHICAGO – May 13, 2014 – Vancive Medical Technologies™ will exhibit at the 24th Conference of the European Wound Management Association (EWMA), 14-16 May, 2014 at the IFEMA, Madrid in Madrid, Spain.
“Exhibiting at EWMA marks the official launch of BeneHold Absorbent Wound Dressings in Europe,” said Colleen Ward, Vice President Global Marketing. “Our products have been shown to provide considerable benefits, especially relative to extended wear time, and we are excited to bring them to market.”
On display will be the BeneHold™ Absorbent Wound Dressing range, which features Vancive’s proprietary TASA™, or Thin Absorbent Skin Adhesive™. At only 0.12 mm in thickness, TASA has the capacity to manage greater quantities of fluid than traditional thin hydrocolloids. Furthermore, the dressings are transparent, allowing for wound site visibility, which, in combination with their high capacity for fluid management and conformability, enables dressings to remain in place for up to seven days.
Vancive will also host an afternoon symposium, “Changing the Game, Not the Dressing: The New Category of “Thin Absorbent” Skin Adhesive”, on May 15:40-16:40 in room N111+N112. The results of recent clinical evaluations will be presented by Jacqui Fletcher, Clinical Strategy Director, Welsh Wound Innovation Centre; Professor Jackie Stephen-Haynes, Birmingham City University; and Rosie Callaghan, Tissue Viability Specialty Nurse.
The BeneHold Absorbent Wound Dressing range addresses the needs of light to moderately exuding chronic and acute wounds. Products and data will be available at the Vancive booth #10A10.
