Product description

Suitable for highly exuding wounds

Fast absorption, distribution and retention of exudate enable full utilisation of the absorption capacity with minimal risk of maceration and leakage, even for highly exuding wounds.

Optimal, moist wound-healing environment for faster healing

The hydrocapillary pad rapidly absorbs exudate vertically and distributes it horizontally. A non-adherent wound contact layer helps maintaining a moist wound-healing environment for faster healing.

All-in-one, simple-to-use wound dressing

Compared to other highly absorbing dressings, Biatain® Super is a cost-effective solution with no need for additional wound contact layers (4).

Mode of action

The superabsorbent particles absorb and retain high amounts of exudate. Fibres distribute the exudate through the pad to maximise absorption. A high moisture vapour transmission rate contributes to the superior exudate management capabilities.

Composition

Biatain® Super consists of a super-absorbent hydrocapillary pad with a semi-permeable water- and bacteria-proof top film, a hydrocolloid component for the adhesion, and a non-adhesive wound contact layer. It is available in both an adhesive and a non-adhesive version.

Usage

Biatain® Super can be used for the treatment of a wide range of exuding wounds, including leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, second-degree burns, surgical wounds and skin abrasions. Biatain® Super is suitable for use under compression therapy.
