ADAPTIC how does it work
Easy to remove minimising pain

The unique cellulose acetate mesh of ADAPTIC protects regenerating tissue by minimising
wound trauma at
dressing change1.

Reduces the risk of maceration and adherence
The pore size of ADAPTIC:

  • Allows easy passage of exudate to the secondary absorbent dressing, thus minimising
    the risk of pooling and maceration at the wound site.
  • Reduces the risk of tissue adherence to both the ADAPTIC Non-Adhering dressing
    and the secondary dressing1.
