Physiotulle® can be used for low to highly exuding chronic and acute wounds; superficial partial-thickness burns, donor sites, post operative wounds, skin abrasions, pressure ulcers and leg ulcers. Can be used with a broad range of absorbent secondary dressings and also under compression therapy.
Physiotulle is a thin and flexible non-adherent wound contact layer for all types of exuding wounds.
Easy to handle and easy to use
Physiotulle does not stick to gloves and scissors when applied. Its thin and flexible structure makes it an ideal contact layer for all types of exuding wounds.
Comfort and protection
The hydrocolloid and petrolatum components ensure that the dressing does not dry out or stick to wound bed resulting in atraumatic removal.
Mode of action
When in contact with wound exudate, the petrolatum and hydrocolloid, carboxymethylcellulose (CMC), particles swell to form a cohesive gel which helps maintain a moist wound healing environment.
Physiotulle consists of a knitted polyester net impregnated with CMC particles suspended in petrolatum.
