Superior absorption due to unique 3D foam
When in contact with exudate the 3D foam structure of Biatain® Silicone Lite conforms closely to the wound bed for superior absorption - even under compression (2). The unique 3D foam structure absorbs the exudate vertically and locks the fluid away within its structure, still leaving the wound moist for optimal wound healing conditions. The fluid handling properties of Biatain® Silicone ensure control of exudate thus minimising risk of leakage and maceration.
Gentle and secure fit
The silicone adhesive layer provides a secure fit to keep the dressing in place while ensuring minimal pain upon removal (1,3).
Biatain® Silicone Lite has a 3-piece non-touch opening for an easy and aseptic application.
The soft and ultra flexible design of Biatain® Silicone Lite ensures a close fit to the wound and body, and the thin foam pad at skin level makes the product comfortable to wear and is suited for users that need increased mobility.
Biatain® Silicone Lite is a thin, ultra flexible and absorbent polyurethane foam dressing with a semi-permeable, bacteria- and waterproof top film and a soft silicone adhesive layer.
Biatain® Silicone Lite can be used for a wide range of non-to-low exuding chronic and acute wounds such as leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, non-infected diabetic foot ulcers, donor sites, postoperative wounds and traumatic wounds (e.g. skin abrasions, skin tears, cuts). It can be used in combination with compression therapy and may be left in place for up to 7 days.
