Xtrasorb

XTRASORB® is a line of novel super-absorbent wound dressings. The core super-absorbent polymer technologies dramatically improve the capabilities of the dressings versus conventional moist wound dressings. Whereas other absorbent dressings (including foams, abd pads, and other cellulose-based dressings) rely on spaces within the dressings to fill with fluid, XTRASORB®’s super-absorbent polymers bind fluid and convert it to a gel. The distinct advantages this offers over traditional first-line dressings are:

  • XTRASORB® dressings are able to hold more fluid
  • XTRASORB® dressings lock fluid inside the dressing, helping to decrease the risk of maceration
  • XTRASORB® dressings lock fluid inside the dressing, helping to keep the harmful contents within wound fluid away from the wound & periwound skin.

The dressings come in a variety of formats:

XTRASORB® HCS (Hydrogel Collodal Sheet) – with and without adhesive border: For dry to moderately exuding wounds

HCS Dressing 15x15cm Adhesive »

HCS Dressing 7.5x7.5cm Adhesive »

XTRASORB® Foam – with and without adhesive border: For moderately to heavily exuding wounds

XTRASORB® “Classic”: For heavily and extra heavily exuding wounds
