We bring more than three decades of expertise to the development of innovative adhesives and material technologies for medical applications. Our work addresses unmet needs of medical device manufacturers, clinicians and patients in segments including wound care, vascular access, surgical, ostomy, electromedical and wearable sensors.
We have applied our experience in skin-friendly adhesives, advanced materials and complex manufacturing platforms to a line of securement products - the BeneHold™ medical tape strips, tube fixation device* and transparent film dressing* - to provide innovative functionality for clinicians, enhance the patient experience and help hospitals cut costs.
The portfolio's first offering, BeneHold medical tape strips^, are breathable perforated strips of paper tape on a release liner with user- and patient-friendly features not offered by traditional roll tape. The tape strips can be used to secure dressings, devices and tubing, and for immobilization of fingers and toes.
In the years ahead, we'll see a greater emphasis on preventing disease before it starts. One emerging technology will be critical in enabling this important change: wearable sensors. By monitoring the vital signs of patients wherever they are, wearable sensors track key information and bring it where it's needed most. From sports and fitness to clinical diagnostics, wearable sensors could have a significant impact on the future of healthcare.
Today's devices are uncomfortable, often rely on wires to transmit information and can be prohibitively expensive. That's why Vancive is building the Metria™ wearable sensor technology** platform of patch-based personal monitoring devices that focuses on user comfort, discretion and cost.
We offer bordering, assembly and fenestration tapes, and OP strips that are compatible with various drape substrates, as well as incise film solutions. Our surgical portfolio leverages proprietary skin-friendly adhesive technologies, including Wetstick™, a patented medical synthetic rubber adhesive that maintains adhesion to wet skin.
Our chronic and acute wound care solutions feature patented skin-friendly adhesives that support optimal healing conditions and extended wear, including high-absorption hydrocolloids that remain integrated when applied to light to moderate exuding wounds. Our new Vancive thin absorbent skin adhesive unites high-performance adhesion and fluid management.
The Vancive portfolio of ostomy products includes adhesives and materials for multi-layer flanges, charcoal filter mounts and moldable rings. We leverage our proprietary hydrocolloid formulations to support optimal wear time and help maintain skin integrity.
Our new InteliShield™ barrier film for ostomy applications is PVC-, PVdC- and plasticizer-free and is as strong, quiet and soft as current products.
Solutions offered through our electromedical portfolio include materials designed for mounting devices onto the skin that conform to most body surfaces, conductive gel-resistant adhesives that are gentle to the skin and clean on removal, and products that are printable and made for easy conversion.
*Regulatory clearance of the BeneHold tube fixation device and transparent film dressing is pending. Anticipated commercial availability is Q2 and Q3 2012, respectively.
**Metria products have not been evaluated by regulatory agencies. Metria features sensor technology from Proteus Biomedical.
