A complete portfolio of innovative, safe and effective Negative Pressure Wound Therapy solutions delivered by experts in medical vacuum technology.

Founded in 1961, Medela has been an innovator in medical vacuum technology for over 50 years. We believe that innovation and quality should not be viewed as a cost of doing business, but as a way of doing business – we apply this in our own operations and in the products and solutions we design to help heal patients and improve their quality of life.

Wound healing and improving quality of life

An estimated excess of $25 billion is spent annually on the treatment of chronic wounds and the burden is rapidly growing due to increasing health care costs, an aging population and a sharp rise in the incidence of diabetes and obesity worldwide.1

Studies show that advanced therapies, such as Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT), can help heal complex wounds while reducing healing time and improve quality of life patient measurers. These benefits, however, come with additional up-front cost for healthcare providers.2

A number of economic studies have shown that early intervention with advanced therapies can, if used appropriately, result in long-term savings despite initial increased treatment costs. Potential benefits to both the wound and periwound skin may include:3,4





  • Earlier control of symptoms
  • Promotion of wound closure
  • Improved quality of life
  • Reduced healthcare costs


A comprehensive portfolio. The right solution for your patient. Your budget.

To the caring NPWT clinician, Medela is the solution provider that simplifies NPWT management and increases patient mobility.

Medela NPWT makes it easy to provide a customized solution that addresses a patient’s individual needs – to improve wound healing rates and satisfaction scores while reducing wound care costs.

Treating a non-healing wound can take months and require a great time commitment for both clinician and patient. It can also compromise a patient’s mobility and ability to go about a daily routine. The Medela NPWT portfolio addresses patient needs across the continuum of care – from hospital to the home or other post-acute setting. It empowers patients and clinicians to take control of their treatment from start to finish.

As you grow older, your housing needs may change. Maybe you'll get tired of raking leaves from the lawn of the house you bought 30 years ago because you liked its huge, shady backyard. You might want to retire in sunny Florida or live close to your grandchildren in Illinois. Perhaps you will need to live in a nursing home or an assisted-living facility. Sometimes, after considering your options, you may even decide to stay where you are. Deciding where to live is never easy, but if you evaluate your options carefully, you'll find it easier to live with your decision. Staying where you are: when there's no place like home
