Introducing the first system to combine negative pressure wound therapy with Hydrofiber Technology.

  • Perforated silicone adhesive borders: Specifically designed to secure the dressing in place while being gentle to the skin during removal.
  • Film layer: The backing film permits evaporation of exudate, aiding overall fluid handling while providing a bacterial, viral and showerproof barrier.
  • Foam layer: Aids distribution of negative pressure across the dressing and to the wound bed.
  • Hydrofiber Technology wound contact layer: Stitch-bonded Hydrofiber wound contact layer gels on contact with wound fluid and is designed to maintain integrity on removal.
  • 8-Layered Hydrofiber Technology: Gels on contact with wound fluid and locks in bacteria within it.Fenestrations in the Hydrofiber Technology layers are designed to promote vertical fluid movement throughout the dressing.
  • Soft-port: Designed to minimize the risk of pressure damage

Hydrofiber Technology:

  • Locks in wound exudate and traps bacteria4-6 to help protect peri-wound skin and reduce
  • maceration.
  • Micro-contours to the wound bed, minimizing dead space where bacteria can grow.
  • Balances wound fluid levels through gelling to maintain a moist wound healing environment.
