Calcium Alginate Dressing
The high exudate absorption capacity of Suprasorb® A promotes wound healing. The absorption of wound exudate causes the exchange of sodium ions with calcium ions, forming a gel. Bacteria and debris are trapped in the gel, creating a moist wound environment.
Suprasorb® A not only promotes wound healing but also offers a high degree of comfort due to its exceptionally soft structure and ease of packing.
