Kliniderm Superabsorbent

Kliniderm® superabsorbent is a four-layer superabsorbent dressing held together by a hypoallergenic seal.  Kliniderm superabsorbent is a protease modulator and is indicated for moderate to highly exuding chronic and acute wounds.  Can be used effectively under compression1.

The Kliniderm® superabsorbent consists of four layers:

Key benefits

  • Save up to 57% compared to other superabsorbent dressings[4]
  • Excellent absorption and retention properties
  • Effective under compression[2]
  • Effectively reduces levels of MMP-2 and MMP-9 in vitro[3]
  • Locks and retains exudate and bacteria in inner core [2]
  • Reduces the risk of maceration and excoriation to peri-wound tissue
  • Reduces the risk of cross contamination on dressing removal
  • Lightweight, flexible and conformable for increased patient comfort
  • Hypoallergenic, no glues or adhesives
