Smith and Nephew wins Galien Award for Pico NPWT system

21st December 2016

Smith and Nephew has received the prestigious 2016 French Galien Award for its novel single-use negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) system Pico.

The product was honoured in the medical disability compensation and return to social life category by the Prix Galien judging panel, who select winners based on their ability to deliver tangible improvements to human life.

Pico is a novel, canister-free single use system that offers portable, accessible and affordable NPWT, with the Prix Galien panel judging it to offer improvements in the daily lives of patients and professionals with the management of wounds.

A study of 326 community based patients who received Pico treatment showed that prior to using Pico, wound dressings were being changed four times a week. This fell to 1.8 changes a week on average in the four-week follow-up period, while the total cost of care was three times less than the baseline.

Bertrand L'Huillier, managing director of Smith and Nephew in France, said: "Receiving the Galien Award is a huge honour and recognition of our contribution to medical research and ability to innovate."
