Ultrasonic Perforating of Foam-Based Wound Dressings
Dressings made from a soft foam-based laminate with an adhesive and perforated contact layer are air-permeable and absorb blood and wound secretions. The product also protects bedsores from being further strained by pressure. Ultrasonic perforating without heat improves product performance The contact layer must adhere reliably to the skin, absorb wound secretions and yet be gently removable from...Read More »
