Always ahead of the pack in the development of innovative technologies

HARTMANN is the first to recognise the benefits of Hydro-Responsive Wound Dressings in
the treatment of wounds and the first to put this into practice.
Our platform-technology has been proven to clearly provide improved wound bed preparation and therefore a faster healing process.
AquaClear® Technology is a unique class of material which can be used in wound dressings and has been developed specifically to promote wound closure.
Together both technologies form the basis for our innovative and highly effective HydroTherapy.
