3M™ Prevena Restor™ Therapy is the next generation of incision and soft tissue management designed to help reduce the risk of postoperative complications. The 3M™ Prevena Restor™ BellaForm™ System is a disposable negative pressure therapy system containing two integrated dressings with an expanded coverage area to help manage the incision and surrounding soft tissue envelope. With no dressing changes required for up to 14 days, the portable system can be easily managed by the patient at home, helping to support home-based healing.
The 3M™ Prevena Restor™ Incision Management System is intended to manage the environment of surgical incisions that continue to drain following sutured or stapled closure by maintaining a closed environment and removing exudate via the application of negative pressure wound therapy.
The 3M™ Prevena Restor™ Incision Management System is built on the proven technology of original 3M™ Prevena™ Therapy with new features to optimize care.
The 3M™ Prevena Restor™ BellaForm™ Dressing is applied over the incision and the surrounding soft tissue, the form-fitting dressing bolsters the incision and surrounding soft tissue envelope.
The effects of negative pressure applied to intact skin via 3M™ Prevena™ Therapy were evaluated using Finite Elemental Analysis (FEA). Based on the analysis, it is hypothesized that volumetric expansion may help expand the tissue beneath the dressing and pulling the tissue open, increase pore volume, lower local interstitial fluid overpressure, and open lymphatics to allow fluid clearance.
The 3M™ Prevena Restor™ Incision Management System is also designed with proprietary SENSAT.R.A.C.™ Technology, which maintains and adjusts to deliver consistent negative pressure at the incision site.
Only the 3M™ Prevena Restor™ Incision Management System delivers -125mmHg negative pressure therapy and accommodates the widest variety of incision sizes, exudate storage capabilities, and mobility needs of patients.
