A highly absorbent polyurethane foam dressing that manages exudate whilst facilitating a moist
wound environment. This allows for autolytic debridement and supports and protects the development
of granulating and new epithelial tissue. The dressing is a combination of two differently structured
foams. The absorbent layer consists of hydrophilic polyurethane foam which promotes vertical wicking
of exudate from the wound surface, minimising the risk of maceration at the wound edges. The outer
layer consists of soft, flexible, semi permeable polyurethane foam which is bacteria and water proof.
The dressing has a 90% fluid retention under standard compression therapy, making it suitable for
effective management of exudating lower leg ulcers of venous aetiology. PermaFoam® can be used
for low to moderate exudating wounds and can remain on a wound for 3?5 days.
