• Provides excellent fluid absorption and retention
• Locks in fluid even under pressure, decreasing the risk of maceration of the wound and surrounding tissue
• The fluid-repellent non-woven backing acts as a barrier and prevents exudate strikethrough


CovaWound™ SuperAbsorbent is indicated for the management of moderately to heavily exuding wounds such as leg ulcers (venous and arterial), foot ulcers, pressure injuries, traumatic and surgical wounds, and first- and second-degree burns. Can be used in conjunction with compression therapy for venous leg ulcers.


Should not be used on third-degree burns, or on patients with a known allergy or sensitivity to any components of the dressing.

Warnings and Precautions

If sensitivity develops, discontinue use. Do not use on lightly exuding or dry wounds. Do not use in cavity wounds, as the dressing will expand when exudate is absorbed. Do not cut dressing. In case of signs of infection (eg, excessive pain, swelling), consult a health care professional for adequate infection treatment.

Mode of Use/Application

Cleanse the wound in accordance with normal procedures. Dry the surrounding skin thoroughly.

Remove the dressing from the packaging and apply with the white non-adherent hydrophilic layer to the wound. Secure the dressing with a suitable bandage or tape.

Removal & Change Frequency
