Biatain® Soft-Hold is a soft and conformable polyurethane foam dressing with an adherent layer covering less than 50% of the foam surface (1). This allows both hands to be free during dressing application and removal.
When in contact with exudate, the unique 3D foam structure of Biatain® conforms closely to the wound bed for superior absorption – even under compression (2-4).
The superior absorption and exudate retention properties of Biatain® Soft-Hold minimize the risk of maceration and leakage.
Due to the superior absorption capacity of Biatain®, the dressing has a long wear time (up to 7 days) (2-4).
Biatain® Soft-Hold is a soft and flexible dressing that is comfortable to wear (1).
The unique 3D foam structure absorbs the exudate vertically and locks the fluid away within its structure, still leaving the wound moist providing good wound healing conditions.
Biatain® Soft-Hold consists of a vapour permeable top film, which is bacteria- and waterproof, an absorbent polyurethane foam and a partially adherent layer.
Biatain® Soft-Hold can be used for a wide range of exuding wounds, including leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, second-degree burns, postoperative wounds and skin abrasions. Biatain® Soft-Hold can be used in combination with compression therapy. Biatain® Soft-Hold should not be used for donor sites.
