An intelligent wound dressing able to absorb and release moisture
Suprasorb X is a unique HydroBalance wound dressing, meaning it is able to absorb exudate and donate fluid at the same time, dependent on the condition in different areas of the wound bed, providing the optimum moist wound healing environment.
Surplus exudate is taken up from the wound into the dressing
Moisture is released from the dressing into the skin and wound bed
Surprasorb X reduces wound pain and has a cooling, soothing effect. It is highly conformable and well tolerated. It is effective under compression.
