The PICO 14 System is an innovative negative pressure wound therapy system with a unique mode of action that can help raise the level of care for orthopedic surgical incisions.
- Protects the incision from external contamination2
- Helps hold the incision together, reducing lateral tensile forces across the incision3
- Helps to increase the activity of the lymphatic system in deep tissue via the reduction of wound fluid4
See the real-world results of this mode of action through clinical evidence, case studies and more: possiblewithpico.com.
