The PolyMem® family of dressings can be used as a primary or secondary dressing, or as a combination of both to support the entire healing continuum. A wide range of PolyMem® dressing configurations are available for use on all wound types, in any anatomical area, including open wounds and closed soft tissue injuries, with all levels of wound drainage from dry to copiously exudating.
The Polymeric Membrane Therapy System provides unrivaled benefits for clinicians and patients. PolyMem dressings are designed to facilitate healing, relieve pain and reduce inflammation in a unique way. Each PolyMem dressing includes a hydrophilic polyurethane matrix with a mild, tissue-friendly wound cleanser, a soothing moisturiser, a superabsorbent, and a semi-permeable film backing. This patented formulation of ingredients works synergistically to provide unrivaled benefits for clinicians and patient.
