Wound bed preparation

Biofilm - a major issue in wound healing

The presence of biofilm is reportedly present in 60-100% of non-healing wounds. While the role that biofilm plays in the chronicity of wounds is still not fully investigated, it is becoming widely accepted that hard-to-heal wounds contain biofilm - and somehow its presence delays or prevents healing. Therefore the management of biofilm in chronic wounds is rapidly becoming a primary object of wound care.

How do microfibers work?

Microfibers are able to attach themselves to even the smallest, most microscopic particles - ones that normal monofilament fibers (positively giant in comparison) crudely brush past. If forces were visible, you‘d be able to see that there are adhesive forces between microfibers and the particles. There are millions of microfibers in a pad, so the overall sticking effect is magnified dramatically. That‘s why cell residues (debris), exudate and slough can be «hoovered up» by microfiber cloths.
