XTRASORB is a novel super-absorbent wound dressing. At its core is a super-absorbent polymer that allows the dressing to help re-define the category of highly absorbent. Many other absorbent dressings rely on spaces within the dressings to fill with fluid: XTRASORB’s super-absorbent polymer binds to fluid and converts to a gel.
Distinct advantages XTRASORB offers over traditional dressings: XTRASORB dressings are able to hold AND LOCK more fluid inside the dressing, helping to decrease the risk of maceration. The dressings come in a variety of sizes and can be used on an assortment of chronic and acute wounds including Pressure Ulcers, Diabetic Foot Ulcers, Fistulas,Venous Leg Ulcers, Post-Operative Wounds, Oncologic Wounds, Arterial Ulcers, Laparotomy Wounds
May be used as a primary or secondary dressing.
