Spiracur Announces Three-Year Agreement With HPSI Purchasing Services

SNaP Wound Care System Now Available in Long-Term Care and Skilled Nursing Facilities

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 2, 2014) - Spiracur, the developer of the only mechanically powered advanced wound care solution that delivers the proven efficacy of Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT), today announced that it has entered into a three-year strategic agreement with HPSI Purchasing Services, whereby HPSI will make available to its members the SNaP® Wound Care System.

"The SNaP System and accompanying products from Spiracur will provide our more than 9,300 members in the senior living market with one of the industry's leading wound care solutions for the treatment and management of chronic and acute wounds, while complementing our entire product portfolio offering," said W. Greg Perron, senior vice president, contract administration for HPSI.

Spiracur's SNaP System and its suite of accessories combine the benefits of advanced wound care with non-powered NPWT, providing patients with a sophisticated, non-invasive and disposable NPWT system designed to promote wound healing. The small device weighs 2.2 ounces and does not require batteries or electricity. In addition, the SNaP System is silent and may be easily worn under clothing.
