Our Mercury NPWT system utilises three new innovations in negative pressure therapy.
THE MERCURY PUMP
(the green bit)
Nexa’s Dynamic Fluid Pump works by manipulating the outer walls of the tubing - eliminating the risk of fluid contaminating the internals of the unit.
It runs continually, providing therapeutic negative pressure and continuous removal of both air & fluid from the wound site.
Exudate can now be removed from the wound even in the event of a leak in the dressing - thereby reducing the potential risk of skin maceration.
2. A New SMARTFLOW™ Connector
The patent-protected SmartFlow™ Connector is located close to the wound. It maintains consistent negative pressure regardless of height variances between the device and dressing.
3. ECOPOUCH: A Flexible Canister
Since we’re not using a traditional air pump to generate negative pressure, we don’t need a thick, bulky fluid canister to act as a manifold. The result? Mercury enables fluid to be collected in a novel flexible canister, called EcoPouch*.
