The Absorbent Wound Dressing portfolio is indicated for the management of lightly to moderately exuding chronic and acute wounds. The range is designed to promote a moist wound environment, which can support healing. The portfolio includes products designed for partial and full thickness pressure sores and leg ulcers as well as superficial wounds, skin tears and postoperative wounds.
All dressings in the range have a low-friction polyurethane top film, which acts as a protective barrier to external contaminants and water from showering.
The Thin Absorbent Wound Dressing features our proprietary Thin Absorbent Skin Adhesive™ (TASA™), a patented acrylic adhesive with advanced fluid-handling capabilities. It is widely accepted that a moist wound environment facilitates autolysis and promotes granulation tissue formation (Fletcher et al, 2011). The Thin Absorbent Wound Dressing may help the wound healing process by providing high breathability and moisture control for the patient’s skin.
High Fluid-Handling Capacity
- The dressings are only 0.1 mm/0.04 inch in thickness and yet have the capacity to manage fluid far in excess of traditional thin hydrocolloids on the market. The dressing’s unique fluid management contributes to its superior performance on the patient’s skin and sustained wear time, reducing the need for frequent dressing changes.
- The dressings help to maintain a moist wound environment, which provides long-term wear (up to seven days), minimizes skin maceration and facilitates granulation, epithelialization and autolysis.
Enhanced Patient Experience
- Due to the thin and flexible design, the dressings easily conform to the body, and the rounded corners help prevent edge lift.
- Not only do the dressings meet ISO 10993 biocompatibility requirements for use as a medical device, these skin-friendly dressings are formulated to be gentle to periwound skin.
- A unique feature of the Thin Absorbent Wound Dressing is that it is transparent, allowing for easy wound site visualization, which minimizes the need for wound bed disturbance caused by frequent dressing removal/changes.
