Moist wound care
Medical superabsorbent dressings are designed to present correct moisture conditions around wounds without resulting in actual wetting. The integration of a SAF™-based fabric, allows for the rapid uptake and retention of exudates from the infected area. As a result, this helps promote an optimum healing environment and limits further bacterial growth. Such medical superabsorbents can aid recovery, especially when used in the treatment of wounds with high exudates.
SAF™ has been extensively developed for use in such applications and we are already actively working with customers creating bespoke fabric and yarn solutions for the effective management of chronic wounds and burns.
Other medical applications:
- Drug delivery (transdermal)
- Spill capture
- Dental pads
- Bed mats – disposable and washable
- Urine capture – bottles and bed-pans
