Activa Healthcare has changed its name to L&R
Highly conformable dressing for highly exuding wounds
Vliwasorb® Pro may be used as a primary wound dressing – its integrated wound contact layer negates the need to use an additional contact layer underneath – saving budget.
Improved absorbency. The new spherical structure of the polymers provide greater surface area, giving Vliwasorb® Pro greater absorbency capacity than Flivasorb®*.
New ergonomic shape, flexible design and softer absorbent core
Very high absorbency and retention capacity
Proteases and microbes are bound in the superabsorbent polymer core
Blue clothing protection layer and smooth wound contact layer
*Test methods as follows: 1 Absorption capacity: PV-QMS-A-011 based on DIN EN ISO 13726 2 Absorption capacity under pressure: internal method description MB 44 based on SMTL TM-414
Rounded edges and ergonomic shape for good conformability with wide edges for high wearing comfort
Blue clothing protection layer protects clothes and bed linen
Superabsorbent core with distribution layer for effective exudate management and flexibility
Smooth wound contact layer for atraumatic dressing changes
Watch our 2 minute video to see how to apply this flexible, highly absorbent dressing for patients with heavily exuding wounds.
Superabsorbent polymers (SAP) are polymers that can absorb several times their own weight in liquid (e.g. 20 times as much fluid).
Chemically, a SAP is a long-chain polymer consisting of a polyacrylate (typically sodium polyacrylate). When a liquid comes into contact with a SAP it will attach to these polymer chains and form a complex network structure, resulting in visible swelling and gelling.
Vliwasorb Pro will retain some pathogens in the dressing but it will not kill them and is primarily designed for exudate management. It should never be used as the only treatment for critically colonized or infected wounds.

The wider, more conformable border makes the overall size of Vliwasorb Pro larger than the equivalent Flivasorb. However the wound pad size remains the same.
