Discover Biatain Silicone with 3DFit Technology

Biatain Silicone with 3DFit Technology conforms to the wound bed and reduces exudate pooling to promote optimal wound healing conditions. 94% of health care professionals say that a close contact to the wound bed is important to create optimal wound healing condition. With conventional foam dressings, a gap may form between the wound bed and the dressing.This gap allows exudate to pool, which may lead to maceration, risk of infection and a delay in wound healing.

Unique 3DFit Technology fills the gap

Exudate pooling is a major risk in most chronic wounds

Wound exudate is a barrier to wound healing in chronic wounds. If not managed properly, exudate can pool and leak onto the wound edges and periwound skin, which leads to a greater risk of maceration and infection. Conventional foam dressings may leave a gap between the foam and the wound bed, increasing the risk of exudate pooling or patients and leading to delayed healing.

Nearly 80% of wounds are less than 2 cm deep <sup>2<sup>

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.

Documented benefits in clinical practice

Wound Profile

Wound bed: Sloughy tissue with medium exudate

Wound edge: Intact

Periwound skin: Dry

After cleansing and debridement, Biatain Silicone with 3DFit Technology was applied to the wound. The dressing conformed perfectly to the wound bedand ensured optimal wound healing conditions.
