Introduction of PICO™ 7Y by Smith & Nephew to Augment Growth

Smith & Nephew, a British medical equipment manufacturing company headquartered in Watford announced that it has introduced a new PICO 7Y Single Use Negative Pressure Wound Therapy System with AIRLOCK™ Technology. The first cutting-edge sNPWT system encompasses integrated Y extension, which allows the utilization of two dressings synchronously from one pump, acknowledging for two wounds to be attended at the same time, and thus diminishing the cost. The PICO 7Y sNPWT contains prolonged soft port and multisite dressings, intended to coincide with complex anatomies.

Also, the growing improvement in patient management and patient outcome efficiencies in clinical settings will bolster the healthy growth of the market in the forthcoming years.
