Unique Biatain 3D foam structure for superior absorption

absorption wound care

When in contact with exudate the unique Biatain 3D-foam conforms closely to the wound bed for superior absorption. The fluid handling properties of Biatain Silicone ensure control of exudate in the wound bed thus minimizing risk of leakage and maceration.

With Biatain's unique 3D polymer foam, Biatain Silicone is able to:

Absorb exudate vertically

Lock away fluid even under pressure

Conform to the wound bed

A cost-effective treatment

Biatain Silicone provides a high value in terms of benefits and cost-effectiveness, Biatain Silicone has superior absorption capacity for more cost-effective wound healing (2).

Effective exudate management prevents leakage thereby reducing incidence of maceration, decreasing the risk of infection and reducing healing time (7), thus lowering costs for dressings and nursing time, as well as leakage-induced changes of clothes, bed sheets etc., with less need for additional treatment of surrounding skin. Biatain foam dressings have superior exudate management properties and thereby lower cost (2).

Fewer dressing changes Fewer dressing changes How to get fewer dressing changes

Fewer dressing changes

The new Biatain® Silicone delivers superior absorption, conformabililty and a secure fit.

 

Up to 50% reduction in dressing changes (2,4)

Patients and HCPs using the new Biatain Silicone can experience up to 50% reduction in dressing changes due to the superior absorption of Biatain Silicone.

 

Fewer dressing changes support faster healing

Every time a wound dressing is changed, the wound will be disturbed, which can delay the healing process (9). Due to fewer dressing changes, the new Biatain Silicone enhances the wound healing process which may deliver faster healing to your patients.
