The BeneHold Securement and Wound Care Solutions
Vancive's BeneHold Securement and Wound Care Solutions Platform includes
the new BeneHold Absorbent Wound Dressing Portfolio. The dressings
manage lightly to moderately exuding chronic and acute wounds and

constructions to suit different wound types and conditions.
BeneHold securement solutions, available as components or finished
products, include the BeneHold™ Medical Tape Strips and the BeneHold™
Tube Fixation Device.
Thin Absorbent Skin Adhesive
The Vancive Thin Absorbent Skin Adhesive (TASA) platform utilizes a
proprietary formulation that has adhesion properties and a moisture
vapor transmission rate comparable to traditional acrylic adhesives,
while delivering superior fluid handling capacities (FHC) that support
extended wear time. The fluid handling characteristics prevent moisture
build-up to minimize skin maceration. Vancive will expand this platform
into the stomacare market in the first quarter of 2013 with a soft
non-woven backed product that enhances the comfort, flexibility of
ostomy bag flanges while reducing the profile significantly.
