Lyofoam is a polyurethane foam wound dressing used in the treatment of light to moderately exuding wounds such as leg ulcers, pressure sores, post-operative and traumatic wound sites, burns and skin grafts.
Lyofoam is a layer of polyurethane foam, heat treated on one side to provide a smooth, hydrophilic, absorbent wound contact layer. Lyofoam meets all the criteria for the ideal wound dressing: maintains moist wound micro-environment, removes excess exudate, permits gaseous exchange, provides thermal insulation, avoids trauma at dressing changes, is impermeable to micro-organisms and is free from particulate and toxic contaminants. In addition, Lyofoam is easy to use and economical.
* Absorbs low to moderate levels of exudate
* Minimises risk of maceration
