How do the Eclypse Super Absorbent Polymer Dressings work? 


First, it rapidly wicks away the excess exudate then sequesters it in to the Polyacrylate (SAP) CrystaLock layer, containing the exudate. Bacteria is also locked away which reduces the risk of infection. 

The Secondary Backing Layer  helps distribute the moisture evenly throughout the dressing. This will help maintain the shape of the dressing, increasing the dressing’s lifespan and saving clinic costs. 

The Silflex® Soft Silicone Contact Layer  is used in the adherent and border dressing products to secure these dressings to the skin, not the wound bed itself. This allows for easy, atraumatic removal without disturbing the wound. 

The Non-Strikethrough Backing prevents leaks to the outer dressings and garments, reducing odor and embarrassment for the patient.

Can Eclypse Super Absorbent (SAP) be used under compression therapy?

The use of compression therapy is the gold standard for the healing of venous leg ulcers.  Compression may come in the form of bandaging, elastic stockings, inelastic compression wraps, and pneumatic compression pumps to deliver the therapy required to heal the wound. The ability of Eclypse dressings to pull excess exudate away from the wound and lock it away is the primary and recommended reason for use under compression.  The secondary backing distributes the fluid throughout the dressing to prevent troublesome bulky areas. Also, the durable backing layer prevents strikethrough and is water resistant which helps during compression treatment.

A recent case study shows the effectiveness of Eclypse dressings with compression therapy to improve healing rates.
