Product description

Suitable for low to 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. The dressings ensure an optimal moist wound healing environment for faster healing.

The hydrocapillary pad absorbs the exudate that passes through the wound contact layer. The wound contact layer allows the exudate to pass through, maintaining a moist wound healing environment in low, medium and highly exuding wounds.

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 low, medium and 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 superabsorbent 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.

The non-adherent wound contact layer separates the absorbent pad from the wound and surrounding skin decreasing the risk of product sticking to the wound.

The exudate passes through the wound contact layer and is absorbed by the absorbent pad. The pad rapidly absorbs exudate vertically and distributes it horizontally.

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.

Biatain® Super is a highly absorbent hydrocapillary dressing providing an optimal, moist wound healing environment for exuding wounds.

The hydrocapillary pad absorbs the exudate that passes through the wound contact layer. The wound contact layer allows the exudate to pass through, maintaining a moist wound healing environment in low, medium and highly exuding wounds.
