The Curato™ is a cutting edge negative pressure wound therapy device with novel features and unique accessories that will greatly impact negative pressure wound therapy in any hospital. Curato™ sets itself apart from other wound therapy devices because it caters to the veterinary profession on a clinical and revenue generating level.
The Curato™ is the first veterinary only device to offer Curváge™ therapy for wounds, allowing the clinician to simultaneously lavage the wound while providing negative pressure wound therapy. Curváge™ is designed to provide continuous irrigation to a wound with sterile saline or other applicable topical solutions. Negative pressure can be applied to assist in the removal of infectious materials and other fluids prior to, during and after irrigation.
Clinicians experienced with negative pressure wound healing will be happy to find many improvements over the current industry standard. The Curato™ features high quality suction tubing with our unique SlickConnect™ adapter. SlickConnect™ is the only rapid tubing to canister connection with a wide mouth adapter that has no bottlenecking of tubing and allows for decreased risk of clogging. Users will also appreciate the portability of the Curato™ unit, the 24 hour battery life, and user friendly LED interface.
Purchasing the Curato™ and any of its accessories is made simple with flexible ordering options. The Curato™ device itself comes with a carrying case and an AC power supply. Our experts have also put together a recommended ‘starter kit’ which includes the device and accessories a clinician just starting out with Curato™ would need. To make wound healing as easy as possible to maintain at clinics, we also sell most accessories individually.
Besides being a quality product, the Curato™ is a valuable asset for any clinic. Clinicians will see a decrease in time spent redressing wounds and in healing time for patients. The Curato™ is a good financial investment; following one three day treatment, the device and accessories are paid for!
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q How is the Curato™ Wound Healing System different than the other products available in the Veterinary market?
A Our dressing is foam-based, not gauze-based, and foam is widely acknowledged to be superior to gauze as a dressing material for use in NPWT. In addition, the foam dressing is manufactured using a proprietary patent-pending process to help eliminate debris resulting from cutting. The Curato™ system is time-tested for clinical efficacy. Only the Curato™ system permits the continuous delivery of wound irrigation simultaneously with NPWT. Recommended wound irrigation rates are 0.5-1.0 ml/kg/hr.
Q Is the Curato™ Wound Treatment unit heavy?
A The Curato™ Wound Treatment unit weighs only 15 ounces, similar devices weigh about 3 ½ pounds. It is portable, durable and functional. It can rest on the floor or hang on a cage or IV pole. It can also be attached to a harness in most cases.
Q Does the Curato™ have battery back up?
A Yes, the Curato™ has 24 hours of battery back up. Battery life can be significantly reduced by dressing leaks so it is always important to maintain a good seal to maximize battery longevity.
Q Do you have an easy way to attach tubing to the dressing?
A Yes, we have a tubing set that allows for an easy way to attach the tubing. Just cut a 1.5 cm hole (nickel-sized) in the drape, peel the paper disk off the pad, exposing the adhesive and seal to the semi-permeable drape over the hole.
Q Does the Infiniti Curato™ Wound Treatment System monitor pressure at the wound site?
A The pressure is measured at the outlet of the tubing leading to the wound dressing. The pressure at the wound is typically maintained within +/-10% of the target pressure.
Q Why does your system offer only 5 pressure settings, -50, -75, -100, -125, and -150 mmHg?
A We chose 5 pressure settings for simplicity and ease of use. Infiniti believes that optimal clinical benefits can be obtained with these 5 pressure settings. The wound does not know the difference between -115, -119, -125 or -133 mm Hg. A pressure setting at -125 mm Hg will essentially produce the same therapeutic effects as the aforementioned pressure levels.
Q What do I need to get started?
A The cost of the device is $1999.00. The average cost for disposables is ~$200/case. The device works for 720 hours of use, which averages out to $2.70/hour of treatment.
Q How should I charge for this service?
