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.
