Biatain® Silicone - for wounds down to 2cm in depth

Biatain Silicone with 3DFit® Technology is designed to reduce exudate pooling and thereby the risk of infection and maceration of the wound edge and periwound skin.

See how Biatain Silicone 3DFit® Technology fills the gap and reduces exudate pooling.

The challenge with conventional dressings, is that they leave a gap between the wound bed and dressing.  The gap allows for exudate pooling which starts a series of events. Pools of exudate may promote bacterial growth, which may lead to the risk of infection. If exudate leaks on to the wound edge and periwound skin it will become macerated and delay wound healing. 

What's needed is a dressing that prevents gaps from forming in the first place, and Biatain Silicone with 3DFit technology is that dressing. It conforms to the wound bed to prevent gaps and exudate pooling, it absorbs the wound exudate and stops pooling before it starts.

The benefits of 3DFit® Technology

Upon contact with exudate, the foam with 3DFit® Technology conforms to the individual wound bed and stops pooling before it starts. Microcapillaries go into action to absorb the exudate vertically, and to create optimal healing conditions. The exudate is locked away and retained even under compression, reducing risk of leakage and maceration of the wound edges and periwound skin.

3DFit® Technology in clinical practise on pressure ulcers

A 28-year-old male, with a neurodegenerative disorder, presented with a pressure ulcer on the lower right leg, caused by his wheelchair.

Wound bed: Sloughy tissue with medium exudate

Wound edge: Intact

Periwound skin: Dry

After cleansing and debridement, Biatain® Silicone was applied to the wound. The dressing conformed perfectly to the wound and ensured appropriate exudate management.
