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 for superior absorption – even under compression (1-3).

Minimised risk of maceration and leakage (1)                     

The superior absorption and retention of exudate minimises risk of maceration and leakage. This non-adhesive dressing is well suited for use on wounds with very fragile peri-wound skin.

Long wear time

Due to the superior absorption capacity of Biatain® the dressing has a long wear time. Studies have shown that Biatain® is a cost-effective solution with a wear time up to 7 days (1-3,7).

Soft and flexible dressing    

Biatain® Non-Adhesive is a soft and flexible dressing that is comfortable to wear. The bevelled edges reduce risk of pressure marks (4,6).

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 for good moist wound healing conditions.

Composition

Biatain® Non-Adhesive is a soft and conformable polyurethane foam dressing with a semi-permeable, bacteria- and waterproof top film.

Usage

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