Debrisoft® Pad (5" x 8")

    Because every wound deserves a clean start.

    Debrisoft is rapidly becoming a well-established part of effective wound bed preparation. The large number of fibers are presented with the right flexibility and density to insure highly selective and effective removal of slough, debris, biofilm or keratosis with minimal to no trauma to viable tissue. While effective, both patients and caregivers appreciate the virtually painless Debrisoft experience.

    The new Debrisoft Pad size, 5” x 8” provides a larger working surface with a finger pocket to improve handling when working with larger wounds or keratotic areas. The pocket provides improved grip and control when you need it most. 

    Mode of action


    Step 1

    Open the sterile single-use pouch and remove Debrisoft. For better results on hard, dry necrosis or dense slough, utilize surgical, sharp or autolytic debridement to remove or soften the necrotic tissue prior to using Debrisoft.

    Step 2

    Thoroughly hydrate the soft, fleecy part of the Debrisoft with (90–110ml) saline or a wound cleanser using your local protocol. Allow any excess to drip off prior to applying to wound or skin. Always refer to local guidelines. Do not wring or cut.

    Step 3

    Insert four fingers into the pocket of the Debrisoft Pad, using your thumb on the outside to further improve grip. Gently with controlled pressure, use the soft, fleecy part of the product in circular motion or long sweeping strokes to disrupt and remove non-viable tissue, debris and biofilm from the wound bed or keratosis from surrounding skin.

    Step 4

    Dispose of used Debrisoft product with clinical waste. Do not cut or re-use. Use a new Debrisoft for each separate wound or skin area.


    Product composition

    Before debridementAfter debridement with Debrisoft

    Venous leg ulcer with hyperkeratotic scales in the periwound area4

    Wound clinic: Venous insufficiency ulcer and dermatitis with residue and hyperkeratotic scales in periwound area. Debrisoft® was first used to cleanse and de-scale periwound area before addressing the wound.


    Venous leg ulcer with hyperkeratotic scales in the periwound area4

    Wound clinic: Venous ulcer from before. Result after 2–3 minutes debridement with another Debrisoft to remove loose debris.


    Pressure injury4

    Long-term care: Very painful wound. Debrisoft used for 2 minutes with no complaints of pain3.


    Mixed leg ulcer5

    Debrisoft was first used to remove the dense fibrinous membrane from the outer wound bed. Next sharp debridement was used to remove the eschar in the center of the wound bed. Finally, Debrisoft was again utilized to remove the remaining necrotic remnants4.

    Fields of application 

    Debrisoft Pad is recommended for cleansing and debridement of both acute and chronic superficial wounds, including but not listed to:

    • leg ulcers
    • diabetic ulcers
    • pressure injuries
    • burns, including 3rd degree burns after surgical debridement
    • traumatic and surgical wounds (e.g., abrasions, inclusions, lacerations)

    Debrisoft is also highly effective for the removal of hyperkeratotic tissue, including lymphedema-associated keratosis, dry skin, and seborrheic plaques.

    Features/ Benefits 

    • Fiber composite lifts, binds and removes slough, debris, biofilm and exudate associated bacteria and MMPs. Debrisoft quickly and effectively removes hypertrophic skin returning healthy moisture levels and allowing the penetration of topical medications.  
    • The high density of flexible fibers allows Debrisoft to effectively loosens debris from the wound bed while protecting newly formed granulation tissue.
    • Debrisoft is easy to use and its construction provides both safety and rapidly visible results. 
    • Soft and flexible fibers of high density and stiffness insure a high degree of patient satisfaction with a virtually painless procedure. 
    • The Debrisoft Pad, 5”x8” incorporates a practical finger pocket function to improve control and comfort when cleansing larger wounds or skin areas.

    To note 

    • Debrisoft products are not wound dressings and should not be left on skin or wounds after use. 
    • Debrisoft may be used at each dressing change until signs of necrosis, debris or biofilm are absent. 
    • Debrisoft is a single use product


    • Hard necrotic tissue or Keratosis should be softened through autolytic debridement using moisture retentive or moisture donating dressings such as Suprasorb G prior to using Debrisoft (MJ, KN please link to the product page).
    • Insure Debrisoft is sufficiently hydrated with saline or a wound cleanser using your local protocol prior to use.
    • While visible results may be seen within a few minutes continue using Debrisoft until the wound appears thoroughly cleansed or the pad appears completely saturated with debris. A second pad may be used to complete the wound bed preparation process if required.
