3M VAC Veraflo Therapy applied on surgical patient

Start Smart with 3M™ Veraflo™ Therapy

Discover how negative pressure wound therapy with instillation​ can promote healing for complex wounds.


Efficient wound healing matters – not only for your patients, but your standard of care. Delayed healing and complications can result in patient discomfort and significant care burdens, impacting clinical outcomes.

  • 40% wound infection rate

    40% of wounds are infected or critically colonised1.

  • Complications of complex wounds

    Hard-to-heal wounds can result in pain, morbidity, prolonged treatment and in some cases major reconstructive surgery2​.

  • Impact of chronic wounds on patients

    Chronic wounds are associated with reduced quality of life, mobility and mental wellbeing for both patients and caregivers3.

Accelerate healing with a smarter way to manage wounds

Wounds may be susceptible to contamination or the development of bioburden – key contributors to complications like infection, inflammation, and delayed healing. 3M™ Veraflo™ Therapy combines vacuum assisted drainage with automated topical wound solution distribution to consistently cleanse and reduce bioburden.

How 3M™ Veraflo™ Therapy can help​

  • Veraflo Therapy applies wound solution to cleanse infectious material

    Topical wound solutions are instilled in the wound to help dilute and solubilise infectious material4.

  • Negative pressure therapy helps remove infectious material

    Negative pressure helps to remove solubilised wound debris and infectious materials, lowering bioburden5.

  • Promotes tissue formation and healing

    Veraflo Therapy promotes tissue formation and perfusion to prepare the wound for closure6.
