Derma Sciences, Inc. introduces its new XTRASORB™ Foam dressing. According to the company, the XTRASORB™ Foam has been designed to provide a marked advancement to standard polyurethane foam dressings. The difference is on the outer facing portion of the dressing. Bonded to this side is a patented super absorbent polymer (SAP) sheet. The SAP sheet not only allows XTRASORB™ Foam to absorb significantly more fluid than market leading foam dressings, but the technology also allows the fluid to be locked into the dressing.
This greatly reduces the chances of wound deterioration due to constant exposure to large amounts of wound fluid, and also minimizes the exposure to harmful components within wound fluid such as bacteria. These benefits are aimed to greatly enhance both the clinical and cost-effectiveness of XTRASORB™ Foam versus current market leading offerings.
XTRASORB™ super absorbent dressings can be used on an assortment of chronic and acute wounds, including: pressure ulcers, venous leg ulcers, arterial ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, post-operative wounds, traumatic wounds, and donor sites. XTRASORB™ Foam is indicated for moderately to heavily exuding wounds.
