Hydrofiber dressings are based on a recent technology which incorporates the benefits of both hydrocolloids and alginates to produce a soft, sterile, absorbent, non-woven pad or ribbon dressing composed of sodium carboxymethylcellulose. These dressings have a unique gelling action which enables the conformable material to lock in the wound exudates, bacteria and its harmful components. Destructive bacteria and enzymes are taken away from the wound along with the non-viable tissue without damaging newly-formed tissue. This aids in speeding up the healing process. We have several types of hydrofiber dressings here so take your pick as per your budget and favorite manufacturer!
