SAN ANTONIO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Acelity, a global wound care and regenerative medicine company, today announced that TIELLE® Non Adhesive, a new and improved foam dressing, is now available in Europe. TIELLE® Non Adhesive is the first in an enhanced range of TIELLE® hydropolymer foam dressings incorporating new design and materials to better meet patient needs and help provide a comfortable and effective healing environment for all types of wounds.
The TIELLE® Non Adhesive, part of the TIELLE® Family range, is intended to manage a range of exudate levels, while retaining more fluid than other foam dressings. The result is a cover dressing that is more comfortable and easier for a patient to wear. The TIELLE® Non Adhesive dressing is a polyurethane foam dressing that can be cut to size, and is designed to help maintain a moist wound healing environment through the combination of superior fluid handling, moisture vapor transmission and flexibility. The design allows up to seven days wear time without leakage, depending on the level of exudate. This may significantly reduce the number of dressing changes.
“This is a significant opportunity for Acelity to apply our deep expertise in advanced wound care and reassert TIELLE® as the market leader in the foam dressing category,” said Joe Woody, president and CEO of Acelity. “In the coming months, we will be introducing four additional innovative options within the TIELLE® range to meet specific patient needs. Our goal at Acelity is to continue building upon our industry-leading position to offer clinicians solutions for the most difficult wounds to heal.”
TIELLE® Non Adhesive dressing is composed of three layers: the original LiquaLock® absorbent layer, which locks fluid away to reduce the risk of maceration and leakage, even under movement and pressure exerted by compression bandaging1, a new superabsorbent layer that enhances fluid handling capacity1, and a new highly breathable polyurethane film backing, which also works as a bacterial barrier2. The new design and materials together maximize performance, leading to a 30 percent increase in Total Fluid Handling Capacity (TFHC)1 and a dressing 40 percent thinner than the previous version. Responding to customer feedback, the dressings are provided in transparent primary packaging, to aid product selection.
