Dressings for wounds
Protex Healthcare was incorporated in the United Kingdom in 1999 with the aim of developing Vacutex™, our unique capillary action wound dressing. Vacutex™ has been carefully developed as part of a wider portfolio of wound management products over the past ten years, and is now an internationally recognised solution for advanced wound care.
Following a three-year development period, which included a large multi-centred random clinical trial and an independent audit, Vacutex™ was immediately accepted into the UK NHS reimbursement regime under a newly created separate reimbursement category. This reflects its innovative and unique stature as a leading global wound management solution.
Following this success, we launched Vacunet™ in 2004; a non-adherent hydrogel coated open weave 100% polyester net dressing, adding to our increasingly recognised portfolio of wound management solutions.
Protex Healthcare products, including Vacutex™ and Vacunet™, are now available across the world with dedicated distributors in the UK, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia and South Korea.
