Mölnlycke Health Care has launched an iPhone application for its Avance Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) system.
The Avance NPWT app has been designed as a reference tool with the ability to illustrate common scenarios that are likely to be encountered by health care professionals and may require instruction to prompt training recall.
The app includes dressing application guides for the Avance system, access to customer services and details for ordering.
An iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch can be used to download the Avance NPWT app and Mölnlycke is looking into producing formats for other smartphones. The app is available as a free download from the Apple app store.
Simon Bosley, Marketing Manager at Mölnlycke Health Care, says: “We have developed the Avance iPhone application to keep health care professionals up to date with the new Avance NPWT system and its consumables.
“Having ready access to an education source ensures clinicians are confident at delivering high quality care in a cost and time effective manner. Research shows 72 per cent of surgeons now use a smartphone and 71 per cent of doctors consider a smartphone an essential part of their practice, so an application is a relevant way to communicate with them and keep them informed.”
