The structure of Biatain Foam is similar to the alveoli of the lungs.
This structure enables Biatain to absorb large amounts of exudate and lock the exudate away from the wound bed. This, in turn, reduces the risk of leakage which can cause maceration and damage to the wound bed.
Due to its excellent retention properties, Biatain can be used safely under compression bandaging
Biatain may be used throughout the wound healing process to provide exudate handling, padding and protection for a variety of wounds including:
- Leg Ulcers
- Pressure Ulcers
- Superficial Burns
- Donor Sites
- Postoperative Wounds
- Skin Abrasions
- Non-Infected Diabetic Foot Ulcers
Biatain Adhesive Dressings have a soft, low friction top film. The film is selectively permeable allowing the passage of gases and water vapour, whilst providing a bacteria proof and water resistant outer layer.
