Better care for chronic wounds

Freudenberg Innovation Award 2016 finalist

Minor injuries or major post-operative wounds – whatever the type of the wound it needs a moist environment for an accelerated and complication-free healing process. To achieve that, wound dressings must not only be able to absorb fluids such as exudates, but must also retain their stability when moist. A gelling fiber dressing meets this challenge. One example is the gelling fiber nonwoven for Advanced Wound Care developed by​ Freudenberg Performance Materials​ in cooperation with a key customer from the medical technology sector. What is special about the dressing is that it retains the wound exudate. And that accelerates the healing process.​
