The Lavage Medical Point of Care Pulsed Lavage System allows, for the first time, pulsed lavage wound debridement to be performed at the patient's bedside, anywhere-anytime. This product is disposable, inexpensive and easy to use. It disrupts the current paradigm of hospital based pulsed lavage therapy by taking pulsed lavage out of the hospital operating room and bringing it to the patient's bedside with safety and cost efficiency.
