Innovative Technology

Medela has developed ways that improve NPWT performance through our Intelligent Pressure Control™ and Dynamic Exudate Removal™ technology.

Intelligent Pressure Control

The Invia® NPWT System’s Intelligent Pressure Control technology ensures reliable and accurate delivery of the prescribed pressure at the wound site through an electronically-controlled feedback system, regardless of the device’s relative height to the patient. Devices that do not control pressure at the wound site may not maintain the prescribed therapy.

Dynamic Exudate Removal

The Invia® NPWT System’s Dynamic Exudate Removal technology senses changes in fluid volume and viscosity and dynamically adjusts airflow cycles to actively prevent blockages. By contrast, the standard NPWT system has static airflow cycles which only occur once every 5 minutes regardless of changes in the wound.
