Accomplishing healing in only two steps using an innovative therapy
HydroTherapy takes a new approach in the treatment of a wide range of wounds - often wound patients don’t know that another approach to therapy can be much more successful. Cindy, an employee at HARTMANN in the Netherlands, tells us how she was able to specifically help using HydroTherapy.
Perfectly harmonised to one another
The success of HydroTherapy is based on two preparations which are perfectly harmonised with each other - each with its own unique mode of action.
HydroTherapy sets itself apart thanks to efficient healing: rapid cleansing, early granulation and sustained epithelialisation.
The first step: HydroClean® Plus wound cleansing
HydroClean plus cleanses and activates the wounds. The unique absorb-cleanse mechanism removes intrusive wound exudate and thus stimulates the healing process.
HydroClean plus has a high content of Ringer’s solution and PHMB* is bound in its core. The watertight cover film ideally constrains liquid so that dressing normally lasts more than three days. Thanks to the non-adhesive wound contact layer, hardly any pain is felt when changing the dressing, thereby making this process comfortable for both the patient and the care personnel.

The second step: HydroTac®
At the same time, moisture can be released, ensuring the ideal wound climate.

Informative and efficient
The idea of the simple therapy concept is also consistently
reflected in the design of the new packaging.

Always ahead of the pack in the development of innovative technologies
HARTMANN was the first to recognise the importance of activated super-absorbant polyacrylate polymers in the treatment of wounds and the first to put it into practice. This platform technology has been proven to provide a clearly better preparation of the wound bed and therefore more rapid healing. Hydrated polyurethanes are a unique class of materials which may be used in wound dressings. This second technology platform has been developed specifically to promote wound closure. Together both technologies form the basis for our unique and highly effective HydroTherapy.
