Acelity Offers New Gelling Fiber Advanced Wound Dressing

Acelity has announced that BIOSORB Gelling Fiber Dressing is available in the United States and has CE Mark in Europe, where it will be available in the coming months. The BIOSORB Dressing is a unique wound dressing that forms a gel when it comes into contact with an exuding wound. This dressing offers increased absorbency and the ability to hold its shape, allowing for intact removal which is designed to make dressing changes less painful for patients. The dressing can be used for a variety of exuding wounds including leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, surgical wounds that exude fluid, partial thickness burns, traumatic and oncology wounds.

“The addition of gelling fiber delivers on an important component of our business strategy in that Acelity now has a complete range of advanced wound dressings that will address a full spectrum of patient needs,” said Joe Woody, president and chief executive officer of Acelity.

BIOSORB Gelling Fiber Dressing comprises CMC (carboxymethylcellulose) fibers which allow the dressing to absorb many times its own weight in fluid, protecting the wound edge and surrounding skin. Furthermore, its cellulose fibers reinforce the dressing, allowing it to remain strong and intact when wet. The product is designed to provide ease of application for the clinician, as well as pain-free removal, to create a more comfortable option for patients compared to many other fiber dressings. BIOSORB Gelling Fiber Dressing is currently available in the non-silver format (non-antimicrobial), with the silver version (anti-microbial) expected to follow early next year.
