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).
Minimized risk of maceration and leakage (1)
The superior absorption and retention of exudate minimizes risk of maceration and leakage. This non-adhesive dressing is well suited for use on wounds with very fragile periwound skin.
Long wear time
Due to the superior absorption capacity of Biatain®, the dressing has a long wear time. Clinical studies have shown that Biatain® is a cost-effective solution with a wear time of up to 7 days (1-3,7).
Soft and flexible dressing
Biatain® Non-Adhesive is a soft and flexible dressing that is comfortable to wear. The bevelled edges reduce the risk of pressure marks (4,6).
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 for good moist wound healing conditions.
Biatain® Non-Adhesive is a soft and conformable polyurethane foam dressing with a semi-permeable, bacteria- and waterproof top film.
Biatain® Non-Adhesive can be used for a wide range of exuding wounds, including leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, non-infected diabetic foot ulcers, second-degree burns, donor sites, postoperative wounds and skin abrasions. Biatain® Non-Adhesive can be used in combination with compression therapy.
