Vliwasorb® Pro and Vliwasorb® Adhesive

clinical information

Highly conformable dressing for highly exuding wounds

Vliwasorb® Pro

Superabsorbent Wound Dressing

Vliwasorb Pro is a superabsorbent dressing for wounds with moderate to very high levels of exudate. The very high absorption and retention capacity of Vliwasorb Pro protects wound edges from maceration.

Vliwasorb Pro promotes wound healing by maintaining a moist wound environment. The development of odour during the treatment is decreased. Proteases (e.g. MMPs, elastase) are reduced.* Vliwasorb Pro’s ergonomic and flexible design makes it safe and easy to use. The blue clothing protection layer protects clothing and bed linen from contamination.

Vliwasorb® adhesive

The self-adhesive superabsorbent wound dressing

Vliwasorb adhesive combines all the proven benefits of the superabsorbent wound dressing Vliwasorb with easy retention.

Unlike the non-adhesive version, Vliwasorb adhesive with its elastic, skin-friendly adhesive membrane is designed for use whenever quick and easy application is required. Vliwasorb adhesive adheres securely without the need for additional retention.

The elastic membrane backing adjusts to the expansion of the superabsorbent wound dressing. This allows the absorption and retention of large amounts of exudate.


  • Suitable for use on parts of the body that are particularly difficult to treat

    • quick and easy handling

    • no additional retention required

    • elastic, skin-friendly adhesive membrane

  • Effective exudate management ensures better quality of life

    • high absorption capacity

    • absorption of exudate, slough and debris

    • absorbs excessive exudate

  • High absorption and retention capacity

    • remoistens effectively

    • protects from wound edge maceration

    • reduces microbial load by retaining microbes in the wound dressing

Vliwasorb® Pro Contraindications

Do not use Vliwasorb® Pro on patients sensitive to any component of the dressing.
