Product description

Unique 3D foam structure for superior absorption

When in contact with exudate the unique 3D foam structure of Biatain conforms closely to the wound bed ® even under compression.

Soft and flexible dressing

Biatain® Adhesive is a soft and flexible dressing providing high patient comfort (4,5).

Superior exudate management.

The superior absorption and retention of exudate minimises risk of maceration and leakage. This adhesive dressing is well suited for use on wounds with healthy peri-wound skin and in areas with a need for extra adhesion.

Long wear time

Due to the superior absorption capacity of Biatain the dressing has a long wear time. Clinical studies have shown that Biatain is a cost-effective solution with a wear time up to 7 days.

Mode of action

The unique 3D foam structure absorbs the exudate vertically and locks the fluid away within its structure, still leaving the wound moist providing optimal moist wound healing conditions.

Composition

Biatain® Adhesive is a soft and conformable polyurethane foam dressing with a hydrocolloid adhesive border.

Usage

Biatain Adhesive can be used for a wide range of exuding wounds, including leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, second-degree burns, donor sites, post-operative wounds and skin abrasions. Biatain® Adhesive can be used in combination with compression therapy.
