Benefits of ADAPTIC™ Non-Adhering Dressing:
- Helps prevent dressing adherence
- Helps protect regenerating tissue and minimise patient pain at dressing changes
- Helps prevent pooling of fluid at the wound site
- Exudate easily passes through to the secondary absorbent dressing
- Can be cut to wound size without unravelling or shredding
How does ADAPTIC™ Non-Adhering Dressing work?
ADAPTIC™ Non-Adhering Dressing protects the fragile tissue in wounds by its' unique structure with small mesh size, preventing tissue to adhere to either the ADAPTIC™ or the secondary dressing on top of it. As it is knitted, ADAPTIC™ can be cut to wound size. The mesh allows for exudates to easily pass through to the secondary dressing used, preventing maceration of the wound surface.
ADAPTIC™ dressing is a primary dressing made of knitted cellulose acetate fabric and impregnated with a specially formulated petrolatum emulsion. It is designed to help protect the wound while preventing the dressing from adhering to the wound.
ADAPTIC™ dressing is indicated for dry to highly exuding wounds where adherence of dressing and exudate is to be prevented, including:
- First and second degree burns
- Venous ulcers
- Pressure ulcers
- Nail extractions
- Surgical incisions
- Reconstructive procedures
- Suture lines
