Minneapolis, MN – May 16, 2018 – The Wound and Skin Care Division of Coloplast U.S. announced the launch of Biatain® Silicone with 3DFit Technology™. Biatain® Silicone now offers a full-range portfolio of foam dressings designed to give health care professionals versatility in the management of exuding wounds or the prevention of pressure injuries.®

Biatain® Silicone with its unique 3DFit Technology™ conforms to the wound bed to minimize the creation of dead space, therefore reducing exudate pooling for optimal healing conditions. The Biatain® Silicone family of foam dressings offers an advanced five-layer construction, including a silicone adhesive contact layer designed to offer a gentle and secure fit. While each Biatain Silicone dressing is designed to promote an optimal moist wound healing environment, Biatain® Silicone Multishape and Sacral dressings are designed to protect against skin and tissue breakdown and may be used as part of a prophylactic protocol to prevent pressure injuries.

"We look forward to offering our customers simple solutions to meet more of their needs," says Vice President of the Wound and Skin Care Division, Thomas Vigso, Coloplast. "Biatain Silicone with 3DFit Technology™ delivers the latest innovation to address the challenges in exudate management while also providing protection against the risk factors that may lead to the development of a pressure injury."

Biatain® Silicone is available globally and offered in various sizes to support clinicians in the treatment of wounds and prevention of pressure injuries.
