Medical Device Transfer Design – Post Surgical Vacuum
A new discreet vacuum system for post-surgery
The SOMAVAC® 100 Sustained Vacuum System is designed to improve the recovery experience after surgeries like abdominoplasty, mastectomies, breast surgery and hernia repairs. After these and other surgeries, the fluid that naturally develops can build up leading to a seroma. Closed suction drains (e.g., JP drains) are used to reduce the risk of seroma and its complications. Manual suction bulbs attached to the end of the drains are unable to apply the sustained suction that has been shown to remove fluids effectively to promote healing.
