Hydrofiber® technology is a soft,
absorbent material that transforms
into a gel on contact with wound fluid.
Allies in the battle against chronicity and delayed healing:
The Advantage of two technologies in one dressing to target the barriers to healing.
1. Hydrofiber® technology forms a cohesive gel that maintains moisture balance and locks in bacteria and exudate.1-12
2. MORE THAN SILVER™ technology kills the bacteria locked inside the dressing.13
