BIOPAD

    The power of pure collagen.

    BIOPAD™ is a primary dressing composed of 100% native equine Type I collagen that can accelerate the closure of hard-to-heal wounds.

    • Type I collagen of equine origin that keeps its native structure.1
    • Protects the wound bed from the outer environment, constituting a barrier against exogenous infective agents.
    • Stimulates the formation of new granulation tissue, the proliferation of fibroblasts, and the deposition of new collagen fibers.1,2
    • Absorbs wound exudate and can control minor bleeding.
