Suprasorb X

An intelligent wound dressing able to absorb and release moisture

In detail

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.
