  • Patent number: 10744225
    Abstract: A silicone foam is described that is produced in-situ at a wound site, e.g. in a wound cavity, through a multi-component system, based on a physical foaming process, wherein the gas required to form the foam structure is provided through a blowing agent independently of the curing reaction of polyorganosiloxane components of the multi-component system. Therefore, the blowing agent is provided as a distinct entity of the multi-component system that is, in particular, not the result of any chemical reaction taking place in the multi-component system. A device for producing the foam and the corresponding negative pressure wound therapy kit are also described.

  • Patent number: 10363185
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a system and method for support and off-loading. The system includes an inner bladder filled with a flowable composition. An outer bladder filled with a flowable composition is positioned adjacent to the inner bladder. The composition of the inner bladder has greater flow characteristics than the composition of the outer bladder. The inner bladder micro-contours to the received body part and the outer bladder macro-contours to the inner bladder after the inner bladder is micro-contoured to the received body part. Alternatively, the system provides a pair of ultra low pressure plenums and a positioner. The patient body size and size and corresponding surface area of the positioner control the amount of gas which is displaced evenly against the walls of the ultra low pressure plenums.
