Product description

Biatain® Ibu Soft-Hold is a soft and flexible absorbent foam dressing. Biatain® Ibu Soft-Hold dressing combines moist wound healing with local release of Ibuprofen.

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 (3,6).

Soft and flexible dressing
Biatain® Ibu Soft-Hold is a soft and flexible dressing that delivers high patient comfort (1,2).

Combines moist wound healing with local release of Ibuprofen
In the presence of exudate, there is a continuous release of a low dose of Ibuprofen into the wound bed throughout the wear time of the dressing (up to 7 days) (1,7).

Wound healing does not have to be painful
Comparative studies have shown a reduction in wound pain in patients wearing Biatain® Ibu compared with dressings without Ibuprofen (4,5).

Mode of action
Ibuprofen is released when the foam comes into contact with wound exudate (1,7).

Biatain® Ibu Soft-Hold is an absorbent polyurethane foam that contains 0.5 mg/cm2 of Ibuprofen homogeneously dispersed throughout the foam matrix (2).

Biatain® Ibu Soft-Hold is indicated for a wide range of low to highly exuding wounds. This includes acute wounds such as second-degree burns, postoperative wounds and skin abrasions: and chronic wounds such as leg ulcers, pressure ulcers and non-infected diabetic foot ulcers. Biatain® Ibu Soft-Hold is suitable for use in combination with compression therapy. Biatain® Ibu Soft-Hold should not be used on donor sites.

Bacteria and waterproof top film

The semi-permeable top film allows for evaporation corresponding to the level of exudate, but stops bacteria and water from entering the wound.

Mode of action

When the dressing comes into contact with wound exudate, it forms a viscous gel that absorbs exudate, but does not adhere to the wound.

Product composition

Comfeel® consists of moisture absorbing sodium carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) particles encapsulated in a synthetic, elastic and sticky mass.The top film is a semi-permeable polyurethane film.
