Overview

Easy To Remove Minimizing Pain

 

The unique cellulose acetate mesh of ADAPTIC™ Dressing protects regenerating tissue by minimizing wound trauma at dressing change.1

Reduces The Risk Of Maceration And Adherence

 

The pore size of ADAPTIC™ Dressing allows easy passage of exudate to the secondary absorbent dressing, thus minimizing the risk of pooling and maceration at the wound site. It also reduces the risk of tissue adherence to both the ADAPTIC™ Dressing and the secondary dressing.1

ADAPTIC™ Dressing Can Be Cut

 

ADAPTIC™ Dressing can be cut to suit the size of the wound without unravelling and shredding.

How it Works

ADAPTIC™ Non-Adhering Dressing protects the wound,  minimizing pain and trauma with its petrolatum loaded mesh.

ADAPTIC™ Non-Adhering Dressing protects the fragile tissue in wounds with a unique structure featuring a small mesh size. This helps to prevent tissue adherence to either the ADAPTIC™ Dressing or the secondary dressing on top.
 
ADAPTIC™ Non-Adhering Dressing

  • The unique structure knitted cellulose acetate fabric mesh impregnated with a petrolatum emulsion is intended as a primary dressing to be used with a secondary dressing
  • Mesh allows for exudate to pass easily through to a secondary absorbent dressing, helping to prevent maceration of the wound surface and minimizing the risk of pooling1
  • Knitted cellulose acetate fabric allows ADAPTIC™ Dressing to be cut to wound size without unravelling or shredding1
  • ADAPTIC™ Non-Adhering Dressing removes cleanly from the wound, minimizing trauma and pain1  during dressing changes
  • In turn, this reduces the risk of tissue adherence to both ADAPTIC™ Dressing and the secondary dressing, and minimizes patient pain1

Inappropriate dressing selection that causes the dressing to adhere to the wound bed can cause trauma and pain when the dressing is removed.2
Dressings that adhere to the wound bed may result in additional practitioner time and use of resources.
