GAITHERSBURG, Md., April 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Innovative Therapies, Inc. (ITI) today introduced Quantum™, a revolution in wound therapy to help hospitals gain better control of wound care costs while potentially enhancing care quality. Quantum is the first fully-loaded negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) device with simultaneous irrigation, providing continuous healing for patients. Beyond a technological advancement, Quantum offers a new form of innovation for wound care – a cost-efficient purchase model in which hospitals pay only for therapy hours used versus the industry-standard rental model.
"Wound care is a very costly and clinically-important part of patient care," said Matthew Dambeck , chief operating officer of ITI. "ITI developed Quantum because we believe device innovation is no longer solely about technology, but about total value to the hospital. The rental model in wound care is not sustainable. Hospitals should not be paying for assets they're not using. With Quantum, hospitals only pay for the hours in use – not when the device is sitting on a shelf. It offers the opportunity to achieve quality care for more patients in a more economically efficient model."
Therapy hours are preloaded onto Quantum based on hospital and outpatient needs, offering a seamless hospital-to-home system, helping to minimize cross-contamination. This purchase model allows the institution to own the device without the costs or inconveniences of maintenance, cleaning or misplacement penalties.
ITI offers the only NPWT on the market that delivers simultaneous irrigation. Unlike other devices where fill volumes must be calculated and NPWT must be discontinued to apply irrigant, Quantum constantly delivers irrigation solution to the entire wound bed, including tunnels and undermined area, without sacrificing continuous negative pressure. The durable foam dressings protect and promote wound healing. Quantum works seamlessly across all healthcare settings—inpatient or outpatient, as well as short and long-term therapy. The device is extremely lightweight, and has an intuitive user interface for ease of use and offers up to 24 hours of battery life.
