Foam dressing with polyurethane top layer, permeable to water vapour1. A unique hydrophilic pore structure results in a strong capillary effect which enables rapid transport of wound exudate and ensures a balanced moist wound environment2. Bacteria and cell debris are safely bound in the body of the dressing, even under compression3 ensuring the wound site is protected against maceration.
