Infection management with responsive fluid handling

Cutimed Sorbact Hydroactive is a unique combination of a Cutimed Sorbact swab combined with a self-adapting, actively responsive hydropolymer matrix. They reduce bacterial load, debride the wound bed, plus absorb and lock wound exudate whilst maintaining a moist wound environment.

Cutimed Sorbact Hydroactive B

Cutimed Sobact Hydroactive B provides the same benefits as Cutimed Sorbact Hydroactive but with an atraumatic adhesive border.

All contaminated, colonised or infected shallow wounds with low to moderate and low viscosity exudate levels. 

  • Arterial, venous, pressure and diabetic foot ulcers
  • Post-operative, dehisced wounds
  • Traumatic wounds 
  • Supports infection management
  • Rapid and effective reduction of wound pathogens and fungi in a moist environment3
  • Responsive exudate management
  • Absorbs and locks exudate, even under compression2
  • Prevents maceration
  • Supports moist wound healing
  • Atraumatic, dressing change
  • Conforms to the wound bed
  • Cushions and protects the wound
  • No chemically active agents
  • No risk of allergic reactions to the Sorbact Technology-coated wound contact layer - can be used safely on all patients including babies and young children, and nursing mothers
  • Cytotoxicity is not an issue - Cutimed Sorbact Hydroactive binds and inactivates wound pathogens without releasing any chemically active substances into the wound bed which might impair wound healing
  • Dressings are safe1 to use for prolonged periods of time or prophyiatically4
