Hydrogel

Characteristics

Hydrogels have become very popular due to their unique properties, including high water content, softness, flexibility, and biocompatibility.  Hydrogel dressings consist of 90% water in a hydrophilic polymer matrix. They are designed to provide hydration to the skin. Applied to wounds, they release water or absorb exudate and promote granulation and debride necrosis.
