Hydro-Responsive Wound Dressing (HRWD™) offering rapid wound debridement
HydroClean® plus provides physical autolytic debridement: with the attributes of autolytic debridement and the benefits of mechanical debridement.
Reduced patient pain
Clinical evaluation shows HydroClean® plus provides rapid debridement with a reduction in patient pain during wear time. [2,4]
Suitable wound types
HydroClean plus can be used on most acute and chronic wounds, including the following but not limited to; pressure ulcers, venous (VLUs) and arterial leg ulcers (ALUs), diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs), acute wounds, surgical wounds, burns, donor sites, malignant wounds, traumatic wounds, abrasions, or fungating wounds.

Benefits of HydroClean® plus
HydroClean® plus significantly reduces bacterial load [2,3,5] and disrupts biofilm .
Facilitates autolytic debridement
Up to 69% of necrosis and devitalised tissue removed within 14 days compared to baseline .
Pain relief for your patients
More than 3 in 4 patients experienced no pain during wear time . Additionally, out of the remaining patients who did experience pain, nearly 50% of those patients reported a significant improvement and pain reduction  throughout treatment with HydroClean® plus.
92% of clinicians rated HydroClean® plus as good or excellent at managing exudate .
Approximate cost savings against other debridement wound dressings:
21% potential saving verses honey 
98% potential saving verses larval 
30% potential saving verses mechanical debridement 
93,5% potential saving verses standard treatment including amputation
