clinical information

Non-woven calcium alginate dressing for heavily exuding wounds

Suprasorb® A

Calcium Alginate Dressing

The high exudate absorption capacity of Suprasorb A promotes wound healing. The absorption of wound exudate causes the exchange of sodium ions with calcium ions, forming a gel. Bacteria and debris are trapped in the gel, creating a moist wound environment.

Suprasorb A not only promotes wound healing but also offers a high degree of comfort due to its exceptionally soft structure and ease of packing.

For the care of non-infected superficial or deep wounds with high levels of exudate.

Indications & Contraindications


  • arterial ulcers

  • venous ulcers

  • diabetic ulcers

  • skin graft donor sites

  • pressure ulcers

Wound healing stages:

  • Exudation phase

  • Granulation phase


Do not use in the case of a known sensitivity to any components.

Clinical Evidence
