Kliniderm® superabsorbent

Kliniderm® superabsorbent is a four-layer superabsorbent dressing held together by a unique patented seal. The dressings are indicated for moderate to highly exuding chronic and acute wounds and can be used under compression.

The Kliniderm® superabsorbent consists of four layers:

Key benefits

  • Save up to 78% compared to other superabsorbent dressings[1]
  • Excellent absorption and retention properties compared to other superabsorbent dressings[2,3]

Applying Kliniderm® superabsorbent*

  1. Clean and dry the wound according to local protocols
  2. Ensure the dressing size incorporates at least 1.5cm of the surrounding healthy skin
