The science behind the dressing

The wound contact layer of Versiva ® XC® dressing is made from Hydrofiber® Technology, which is unique to ConvaTec. Dressings with Hydrofiber® Technology transform wound care by:

Locking in wound exudate1a

  • Rapidly turns to a clear gel on contact with fluid
  • Absorbs and retains fluid, preventing lateral wicking2
  • Traps harmful bacteria and enzymes contained
    in exudate3,4,5

Contouring to the wound bed6,7

  • Minimizes dead space where harmful bacteria
    can thrive
  • The gel covers the wound bed5

Responding to wound conditions

  • Controlled MVTR8
  • Maintains a moist wound healing environment
