  • The Invia Integrated Dressing received FDA approval in July and is designed to work with Medela NPWT pumps, Liberty® and MotionTM, which work to maintain even pressure while pulling fluid away and keeping it off the wound site to support healing.

Medela, the healthcare choice for more than six million hospitals around the world*, announced today that it will introduce a new innovative sterile dressing within its negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) portfolio in September. The Invia® Integrated Dressing is indicated for all wound types, including closed surgical incision, and can be used in the hospital or home setting, for up to seven days.

“We are thrilled to support the needs of our customers across the USA by introducing our Integrated Dressing,” explains Annette Brüls, CEO of Medela. “Backed by more than six decades of expertise in medical vacuum technology, this long-awaited product will be available in September as an extension of our full-system solution to support wound healing. When we set out to support this category, we applied our research-based suction technology to our negative pressure wound therapy solutions, and we’ve found that this provides an optimal environment for confident and effective wound healing.”

The Invia Integrated Dressing received FDA approval in July and is designed to work with Medela NPWT pumps, Liberty® and MotionTM, which work to maintain even pressure while pulling fluid away and keeping it off the wound site to support healing. The Integrated Dressing is a ‘peel-and-stick’ adhesive, comprised of a three-layer fluid handling pad that features a skin-friendly silicone adhesive border. The Integrated Dressing also includes a Quick-connector, common across the Medela NPWT portfolio for familiar pump-to-dressing connection, which offers clinician convenience while maximizing patient confidence and comfort.

With decades of expertise in medical vacuum technology, Medela’s NPWT solutions integrate Intelligent Pressure Control to ensure consistent and even pressure is delivered directly to the wound site, to promote the body’s natural wound healing and tissue regeneration process.

The Medela system also includes Dynamic Exudate Removal technology featuring double-lumen tubing to prevent blockages, efficiently remove exudate, and dynamically adapt to fluid fluctuations to pull fluid away from the wound and into the canister while allowing the body to continue its natural wound healing and tissue regeneration process.

The whole NPWT Innovation system solution is further informed by feedback from customers and healthcare professionals to include:
Whisper-quiet suction technology, minimizing disturbances during therapy
Compact and lightweight design that maximizes patient comfort and mobility
Award-winning support from our in-house customer excellence team
Straightforward pricing structure for increased accessibility and better transparency through predictable month-to-month spend that reduces administrative burdens and lowers cost without impacting patient care

To help users get started, Medela’s negative pressure wound therapy system includes comprehensive support for clinicians and patients, including on-site clinical in-servicing and training, instructional videos for staff and patients, and product tutorials supported by clinical education experts. Medela pumps are equipped with a QR code for product support and troubleshooting. For continued education, support videos are accessible via the free Medela NPWT app and online. As part of the company’s commitment to education, Medela offers complimentary professional continuing education courses on NPWT through Medela University.
