Innovative Therapies Inc. Launches the ITI Bridging Set, Optimizing Fluid Removal from Complex Wounds

Customized Bridge Foam for Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT)

GAITHERSBURG, Md.--(Healthcare Sales & Marketing Network)-- Innovative Therapies Inc. (ITI) announced today the launch of the ITI Bridging Set. Developed through extensive clinical testing using ITI’s SVED/Svedman NPWT device, the ITI Bridging Set is the only bridging solution specifically designed and customized for bridging applications in NPWT.

The ITI Bridging Set offers these advantages:
  • Specialized foam composition: Larger pores and lower density than standard black foam to keep cells open and fluid moving.
  • Optimal dimensions: Foam length, width, and depth designed for maximum flow.
  • Ideally suited for ITI’s groundbreaking dual-modality therapy: NPWT with irrigation. As needed, two bridges can be employed, one for suction and one for irrigation.
  • A single set accommodates a dressing change: 2 hydrophobic foam bridges (35 x 4 x 2.5 cm) and 2 polyurethane drapes.
With bridging, the clinician can locate connection ports away from the wound site. This is a compelling benefit for areas in danger of tube-to-skin pressure, such as sacral wounds. For areas such as a foot’s plantar surface or heel, bridging to remote connection ports promotes a tight seal and patient ease of movement.

Addressing multiple wounds or very small wounds, the clinician can bridge one wound to another, or bridge multiple wounds to a common connection point.

“Manufacturers are often slow to respond to clinicians’ and patients’ expressed needs,” says Richard Vogel, CEO/President of ITI. “But we are not. ITI takes pride in being the first to offer this practical, proven and patented solution designed specifically for NPWT bridging.”
