AbsoClear® Comfort is water clear hydrogel sheet dressing, made of ionic polymer and glycerol, the water clear hydrogel is placed as an island pad on bacteria proof, virus proof and waterproof adhesive polyurethane film.
Being ionic means that AbsoClear® Comfort is as absorbent as alginate and foam wound dressings due to its high osmotic effect.
In addition, AbsoClear® Comfort high glycerol content mitigates inflammation and relieves pain. Glycerol also has slow but effective antimicrobial activity.
1. Superabsorbent Gel:
AbsoClear® Comfort can absorb wound exudates up to 14 times its original weight as same as alginate and foam wound dressings. This results in longer wear time and reducing risk of maceration.
2. Antimicrobial Gel:
Invitro tests showed that AbsoClear® Comfort has bacteriostatic and fungistatic effect against a broad range of microorganisms.
3. Sticky Gel:
Unlike water-based hydrogels, AbsoClear® Comfort adheres once applied, so it might not need fixation tape or secondary fixation dressing and allows easy application.
4. Wound environment:
a) AbsoClear® Comfort creates moist wound environment upon absorption which is important in promoting the wound healing. It also allows easy removal without pain or trauma during the dressing change.
