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 in highly exuding wounds.
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.
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 non-adhesive version.
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.
