Acute wounds

An acute wound is often associated with trauma and pain. It is therefore important to be able to remove foreign bodies, such as grit from the wound as quickly and painlessly as possible and reduce the risk of infection. The Monofilament Fibre Technology of Debrisoft can gently lift debris from the wound bed, often in just a few minutes, leaving the wound in the best condition to continue the healing process.
