Negative Pressure Wound Therapy

AQF Medical is one of the world’s largest fabricators of reticulated polyurethane foam for the Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) market. Negative Pressure Wound Therapy systems improve wound healing by removing wound exudate, optimising blood flow, decreasing tissue oedema and bacterial count, and actively promoting tissue granulation.

HME Filters

AQF Medical manufacture a range of Heat and Moisture Exchange (HME) foam filters with particular focus on consistent pore size. We develop and manufacture customised HME foam components in a range of sizes, porosities and densities to meet each customer’s individual requirements. 


One of the main goals of foam woundcare dressings is to create a moist environment conducive to wound healing. AQF Medical offer a range of high performance medical grade, open cell, hydrophilic polyurethane foams with high absorbent and retention characteristics. 

Wicking, Filtering & Dispensing

The right foam for the right application is a key principal within AQF Medical. The applications for technical foam products are many and varied. The key properties of the foam used will depend entirely on the precise application that it is being used for. Properties such as material, chemistry, pore size, density, open or closed cell structure, all have to be considered.

Skin Prep

AQF Medical can design and develop your Antiseptic Applicator for use in preoperative skin preparation where the medical foams and laminates absorb the released anti-microbial agent and then reservoir and deliver a smooth flow of this fluid to the skin. The gentle-friction of the cellular scrub surface on the disposable medical devices, based on the physical characteristics of the foam, helps the solution penetrate the skin.
