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 (1-3).
Soft and flexible dressing
Biatain® Adhesive is a soft and flexible dressing providing high patient comfort (4,5).
Superior exudate management
The superior absorption and retention of exudate minimises risk of maceration and leakage (1). This adhesive dressing is well suited for use on wounds with healthy periwound skin and in areas with a need for extra adhesion.
Long wear time
Due to the superior absorption capacity of Biatain® the dressing has a long wear time. Studies have shown that Biatain® is a cost-effective solution with a wear time up to 7 days (6-8).
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 moist wound healing conditions.
Biatain® Adhesive is a soft and conformable polyurethane foam dressing with a hydrocolloid adhesive border.
Biatain® Adhesive can be used for a wide range of exuding wounds, including leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, second degree burns, donor sites, postoperative wounds and skin abrasions. Biatain® Adhesive can be used in combination with compression therapy.
