Super Absorbent Polymer technology allows XTRASORB® to redefine expectations of moist wound dressings

XTRASORB® is a line of novel super-absorbent wound dressings. The core super-absorbent polymer technologies dramatically improve the capabilities of the dressings versus conventional moist wound dressings. Whereas other absorbent dressings (including foams, abd pads, and other cellulose-based dressings) rely on spaces within the dressings to fill with fluid, XTRASORB®’s super-absorbent polymers bind fluid and convert it to a gel. The distinct advantages this offers over traditional first-line dressings are:

  • XTRASORB® dressings are able to hold more fluid
  • XTRASORB® dressings lock fluid inside the dressing, helping to decrease the risk of maceration
  • XTRASORB® dressings lock fluid inside the dressing, helping to keep the harmful contents within wound fluid away from the wound & periwound skin

The dressings come in a variety of formats:

XTRASORB® HCS – with and without adhesive border: For dry to moderately exuding wounds
XTRASORB® Foam – with and without adhesive border: For moderately to heavily exuding wounds
XTRASORB® “Classic”: For heavily and extra heavily exuding wounds

The dressings can be used on an assortment of chronic and acute wounds including:

  • Pressure Ulcers
  • Diabetic Foot Ulcers
  • Donor Sites
  • Venous Leg Ulcers
  • Post-Operative Wounds
  • Arterial Ulcers
  • Traumatic Wounds
