EFFECTIVE. EFFICIENT. RELIABLE.
The SUPRATHEL® artificial wound and burn dressing is 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
- Pressure (stage I and IV) and venous ulcers
- Ulcers caused by mixed vascular etiologies
- Venous stasis and diabetic ulcers
- 1st and 2nd degree burns
- Partial thickness burns
- Cuts and abrasions
- Acute wounds
- Trauma wounds
- Surgical wounds
- Superficial wounds
