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 (2-4).

Minimized risk of maceration and leakage
The superior absorption and exudate retention properties of Biatain® Soft-Hold minimize the risk of maceration and leakage.

Long wear time
Due to the superior absorption capacity of Biatain®, the dressing has a long wear time (up to 7 days) (2-4).

Soft and flexible dressing
Biatain® Soft-Hold is a soft and flexible dressing that is comfortable to wear (1).

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 providing good wound healing conditions.

Composition
Biatain® Soft-Hold consists of a vapour permeable top film, which is bacteria- and waterproof, an absorbent polyurethane foam and a partially adherent layer.

Usage
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.

Suitable for highly exuding wounds

Fast absorption, distribution and retention of exudate enable full utilization 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 maintain 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 super absorbent particles absorb and retain high amounts of exudate. Fibres distribute the exudate through the pad to maximize absorption. A high moisture vapour transmission rate contributes to the superior exudate management capabilities.

Composition

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

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.
