The start of faster wound healing
With its unique Rinsing-Absorption Mechanism, HydroClean® plus activates the wound healing process. This forms the basis of rapid wound treatment.View video
Rapid wound cleansing and sustained epithelialization in two simple steps
The success of HydroTherapy is derived from two Hydro-Responsive Wound Dressings (HRWD®) which perfectly complement one another – each with its own unique mode of action, delivering rapid cleansing, early granulation tissue formation, epithelialisation while maintaining a balanced level of moisture at all phases of wound progression – to support effective wound healing. 1
Effective cleansing activates the wound so that granulation can start. Having an optimal moist wound environment protects and promotes sustained epithelialization.
HydroClean® plus cleanses the wound effectively and activates the healing process
HydroClean® plus supports efficient healing of chronic and hard-to-heal wounds with its unique Rinsing-Absorption Mechanism.1, 2
What HydroClean® plus can do:
- Gently remove necrosis and devitalised tissue via autolysis 3, 4
- Stimulate granulation tissue formation 5, 6, 7
- Keep wounds moist for up to three days 8
HydroClean® plus is the ideal first step to efficient wound healing.
Benefits of wound treatment with HydroClean® plus:
- Painless dressing changes 8
- Autolytic debridement 3, 9, 10
- Easy to apply, flexible and conformable 11
- Can be used in conjunction with compression therapy 11
