EFFECTIVE. EFFICIENT. RELIABLE.
The SUPRATHEL® artificial wound and burn dressing as a thin elastic membrane adapts itself optimally to the surface of the wound and adheres on its own. SUPRATHEL® is only applied once onto the previously cleaned and disinfected wound where it remains until the wound is completely healed. After it is applied, the membrane becomes translucent and makes the inspection of the healing process possible.
SUPRATHEL® can be removed easily from the healed skin parts without causing any pain.
SUPRATHEL® was developed for the management of epidermal and dermal wounds. SUPRATHEL® covers a wide range of wound care application:
- Partial and full thickness wounds

- Venous stasis and diabetic ulcers

- Grafted wounds and donor sites
Effective July 1, 2020 the HCPCS Workgroup created a new HCPCS code, C1849 for “Skin substitute, synthetic, resorbable, per square centimeter”. CMS has designated C1849 as a high cost skin substitute under the Medicare Outpatient Prospective Payment System.
