With Hydrolock® technology
Unlike traditional gelling fibres, Exufiber® and Exufiber® Ag+ are non-woven polyvinyl alcohol fibre dressings. On contact with exudate they transform into a gel. The tightly packed fibres keep exudate locked in while the capillary action enables transfer of exudate to the secondary dressing
A cavity model was used to simulate the fluid transfer capability of Exufiber® and Aquacel® ribbon dressings. 5ml of Solution A was added to the cavity and the dressings were left to absorb and transfer. An additional 5ml was then added and the dressings left to absorb and transfer again. Exufiber® demonstrated a better capability to transfer fluid to the secondary dressing than Aquacel®, and when the dressings were removed, less fluid was left in the cavity
The Exufiber® Effect
It is time for change
Highly exuding wounds are challenging to treat. Clinicians may see exudate pooling, slough and delayed healing due to the presence of biofilm. Patients may feel pain, embarrassment and anxiety from leakage. That is why we are looking at gelling fibres differently. Providing a wound healing solution that clinicians want to see and that patients can feel.
