Coloplast Wound Care
Stand 11

 

Dealing with wounds on a daily basis can be challenging. At Coloplast we want to help reduce this complexity and ensure that everyone caring for wounds feels confident that they are helping to optimise the healing process and providing patients with the best care. Our wound care portfolio offers products that assist healthcare professionals and patients with a complete wound healing cycle. Our advanced dressings are developed through ongoing conversations with the people who use our products.

With conventional foam dressings, a gap can form between the wound bed and the dressing. This allows exudate pooling, which may lead to the risk of infection, and to a delay in wound healing (1-3). Biatain® Silicone is a conforming dressing with unique 3DFit Technology® that fills the gap and reduces exudate pooling to promote optimal wound healing conditions.

By working together to achieve the same goals, we can help accelerate healing and simplify wound care. That’s how we Make Every Day Count.
