Absorbency and fluid handling

TIELLE helps maintain a moist wound healing environment through the combination of absorbency and moisture vapour transmission.
The hydropolymer with LiquaLock Technology:

  • Expands and conforms to the wound bed2
  • Ensures fluid is locked away, minimising the risk of leakage and maceration6

TIELLE dressings contribute to a decrease in:

  • Maceration1-3,6
  • Excoriation2
  • Leakage1-3,6,7
  • Number of dressing changes2
  • Skin reactions (to the adhesive border)8

The unique adhesive allows1:

  • Repositioning as needed on initial application
  • Dressing flexibility to conform to difficult to dress areas
