Smith+Nephew Introduces RENASYS™ EDGE Negative Pressure Wound Therapy System - Exciting Home-Based Care Option for Patients with Chronic Wounds

Monday, April 01, 2024

Smith+Nephew, a global leader in medical technology, is excited to announce the launch of its RENASYS EDGE Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) System in the United States. This system offers a patient-centric approach to treating chronic wounds and is designed to be lightweight, compact, and discreet, allowing patients to carry or wear it without drawing attention or disrupting their daily activities. Chronic wounds represent a significant financial burden in the US, with an estimated annual cost of $33 billion and affecting approximately 8.2 million individuals. The RENASYS EDGE System is tailored to address the needs of these patients, particularly those receiving care at home, with the aim of improving their quality of life.

To expand access to the RENASYS EDGE System, Smith+Nephew has formed new national distribution partnerships with SunMED Medical Solutions and First Nation Group. These partnerships will facilitate broader adoption of this advanced technology and support the company's growing negative pressure wound therapy business.

Patients who have experienced the RENASYS EDGE System praise its intuitive and easy-to-use design. The system features a user-friendly interface that provides step-by-step guidance on therapy application. Technical support is easily accessible through the system's near field communication feature, and Smith+Nephew offers 24-hour customer support and a clinical hotline for additional assistance. Clinicians interested in integrating the RENASYS EDGE System into their clinical practice are encouraged to explore its capabilities and benefits further.
