FDA Clears Applied Tissue’s Platform Wound Dressing

Jan. 17, 2019

The FDA granted Applied Tissue Technologies 510(k) clearance for its platform wound dressing, a negative pressure wound therapy device.

The device is an embossed, transparent dressing with an adhesive base and impermeable membrane. It requires no foam or gauze.

When the pump is turned on, the membrane is pulled into direct contact with the wound. Its design creates primary channels for air and fluid, while membrane folds apply an even distribution of negative pressure across the wound.
