Discover Biatain® Silicone with 3DFit™ Technology

 

With conventional foam dressings, a gap can form between the wound bed and the dressing. This allows exudate pooling, which may lead to the risk of infection, and to a delay in wound healing (10-12). Biatain Silicone is a conforming dressing with 3DFit™ Technology that fills the gap and prevents exudate pooling to promote optimal healing conditions.

A Perfect Fit. Every Time.

The benefits of 3DFit™ Technology

Upon contact with exudate, the foam with 3DFit™ Technology conforms to the individual wound bed and stops pooling before it starts. Microcapillaries go into action to absorb the exudate vertically, and to create optimal healing conditions. The exudate is locked away and retained even under compression, reducing risk of leakage and maceration of the wound edges and periwound skin.

Wound bed: Sloughy tissue with medium exudate

Wound edge: Intact

Periwound skin: Dry

 

After cleansing and debridement, Biatain® Siliconewas applied to the wound. The dressing conformed perfectly to the wound and ensured appropriate exudate management.

The Triangle of Wound Assessment

The Triangle of Wound Assessment is a holistic framework that allows practitioners to assess and manage all areas of the wound, including the periwound skin. It's a simple and systematic approach that guides the user from complete wound assessment to setting management goals, and selecting the optimal treatment.

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.
