Infection management with responsive fluid handling

Cutimed Sorbact Hydroactive is a unique combination of a Cutimed Sorbact swab combined with a interactive 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

  • Dressings are safe1 to use for prolonged periods of time or prophyiatically4
