Invia Wound Therapy For Negative Pressure Wound Therapy by Medela


Invia Wound Therapy utilizes negative pressure to help promote healing in chronic or difficult to heal wounds. Sub atmospheric pressure is applied to the wound using either the Invia Liberty or the Invia Vario through a specialized dressing kit. Safely and effectively, the pressure and the kit remove infectious materials and mechanically stimulate tissue to help promote wound healing. Invia Wound Therapy takes only a few steps to get a patient started on negative pressure wound therapy.


Please remember that each individual wound is unique. Consult the patient’s physician on whether or not Invia Wound Therapy is an appropriate method of treatment for each particular instance.

Watch the videos below for more information on how to use Invia Wound Therapy.

We have witnessed the positive impact BRODA chairs have had in countless patients’ lives. For some, having the appropriate BRODA chair means relief from chronic pain, for others, it’s maintaining independence, and in many cases, it means getting out of bed for the first time in months to engage in their surroundings. Regardless of age, patients seated for extended periods of time deserve to be comfortable. Comfort reduces stress, improves recovery, well-being, and is therefore…absolutely essential to one’s quality of life. 

Comfort is the key, and when it comes to providing comfort, BRODA is essential.

Infection Control to Help With “ACT 52”

SMP has added a new category to our line of Infection Control Products. In this category we have new products that can help with Act 52 requirements in Pennsylvania. “We are pleased to work with Hygie to bring to the U.S. healthcare market the same infection control solution that has been so widely accepted in Canada,” says Greg Kilgore, president of LiftSeat. “Hygie’s Hygienic Cover System addresses a critical healthcare risk and we believe it will become a standard for the care of isolation patients in addition to being practical for the care of any patient needing a bedpan or commode. According to a recent study published in the American Journal of Infection Control, 13 out of every 1,000 patients or approximately 7,178 inpatients are infected or colonized with Clostridium difficile every day.  These infections, which are transmitted through pathogens contained in the organic waste of an infected patient, kill between 165 and 438 patients every day and cost between $17.6 and $51.5 million.
  • Envirox – uses green technology, completely neutral ph, short dwell time 5 minutes or less. (www.enviroxclean.com)
SMP would like to show you these products, how we can help with compliance with Act 52 and save you “lots of money.” Please call us for a live demostration at 610-644-1370.
