Advances in medical technology, including orthopedics, prosthetics, transdermal patches and IV site dressings, are always evolving. Healing is faster when medical cushioning and wound dressings absorb impact, retain shape and hinder infection.
Medical foam for dressing wounds must offer comfort and durability, while providing a reliable barrier to bacteria so the wound is less vulnerable to infection. DermaBak® Advanced Dermal foam membrane, designed for advanced wound dressing backings, transdermal patches, IV site dressings and EKG electrodes, provides long-term comfort, breathability and good conformability for a contoured fit. DermaBak® materials are engineered with a low coefficient of friction, reducing possible snags and edge curling that contribute to contamination. They are resistant to surface staining and soiling, reducing the frequency of dressing changes. They are low-profile, comfortable to the touch and tested to meet ISO 10993 standards for skin contact.
PORON Medical® cellular polyurethanes are engineered, medium density, microcellular foam material used in orthopedic and prosthetic applications, including custom orthotics, custom prefabricated orthotics, prosthetic padding and other biomechanical supports. PORON® Medical materials are designed to provide a reliable, contoured fit with excellent impact absorption and support for balance and stability. Available in Firm, Energy Absorbing and Slow Recovery options, these materials have received the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) Seal of Acceptance as beneficial to foot health and of significant value when used in a consistently applied program of daily foot care and regular professional treatment.
Most medical cushioning breaks down too quickly. PORON® Medical polyurethane materials are engineered for long-term comfort with a unique open cell structure that produces a breathable, highly resilient foam that will not break down with continual use.
