URGOTUL CONTACT FLEX (Piece)
UrgoTul® is a non-adhesive, non-occlusive contact layer, composed of a polyester mesh impregnated with Lipido-Colloid Technology (TLC). TLC is composed of hydrocolloid particles (carboxymethylcellulose), paraffin oil, petrolatum and polymers. The TLC (Lipido-Colloid Technology) is an exclusive patented innovation from Urgo.
UrgoTul is indicated for :
- Acute wounds (burns, dermal abrasions, traumatic wounds, postoperative wounds), chronic wounds (pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers) at the granulation and epithelialisation stage.
- Non to low exuding wounds
- Non infected
- Can be combined with a secondary dressing
- Can be used in cavity wounds
In contact with wound exudate, the hydrocolloid particles interact with the petroleum jelly component to form a lipido-colloid interface. The interface creates a moist environment ideal for wound healing.
Providing harm free care :
- No pain at dressing changes 1
- Will not damage newly formed tissue 2,3,4
Providing a nurturing environment for healing
- Promotes wound healing through stimulation of key cells proliferation 5,6
- Creates a moist wound healing environment 2,3,7,8
- Non-adherence to the wound bed 9
- Protects the surrounding skin 3,9,10
- Does not dry out: can be left in place for up to 7 days
