SNaP® Wound Care System now on UK Drug TariffSpiracur Inc is now included in the NHS Supply Chain Framework Agreement meaning that the SNaP® Wound Care System will be included on the UK Drug Tariff as of 1 October, 2012.

The ultra-portable SNaP® Wound Care System is a negative pressure wound therapy device, which uses spring technology to reduce air density and control how much negative pressure is carried to the wound bed.

'Because it is so small and portable, it allows our patients to carry on their regular lifestyle during therapy,' said Ros Thomas, Deputy Head of Podiatry (ABM Trust) at Morriston Hospital in Swansea, Wales. 'Not only has quality of life for our patients improved during treatment with the SNaP® System, clinical outcomes are excellent and we are seeing a reduction in costs as patients remain at their homes and not in hospital.'

The system has shown to help treat hard-to-heal lower-extremity wounds and reduces pain and exudate.
