Two preparations = one successful therapy
HydroTherapy's success is based on two perfectly harmonised preparations each with a unique mode of function for chronic wounds and hard-to-heal wounds.
Quick cleansing, early granulation and sustained epithelialisation emphasise the effectiveness of HydroTherapy.
Two simple steps to successful wound closure.
– the epithelialization boost.
Successful healing in 10–12 weeks
At the beginning of the therapy, the wound is cleansed and activated by HydroClean plus’s unique absorb-cleanse mechanism.
Once the cleansing of the wound has been completed, granulation starts to happen. HydroTac protects the wound and furthers the growth of clean, red granulation tissue.
Sustained epithelialisation leads to successful healing in a shorter time.
1. Step: HydroClean® plus
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.

2. Step: HydroTac® – Faster wound healing
New HydroTac® accelerates epithelial wound closure. This innovation perfectly complements the cleansing effect of HydroClean®. Thanks to AquaClear technology, HydroTac enhances the body own healing process. The innovative AquaClear gel increases the concentration of growth factors with hydrated polyurethane. The growth factors accumulate on the surface of the gel.
At the same time, moisture can be released, ensuring the ideal wound climate.
HydroTac can be used for several days without having to change the dressing, thus giving the wound plenty of time to rest.
