Breakthrough in Burn Care
When pioneering burn and chronic wound care specialist Dr. Aubrey Woodroof turned to Trelleborg Sealing Solutions to help bring his groundbreaking healing concept PermeaDerm to market, the collaboration gave rise to a range of biosynthetic skin products that have taken treatment to a whole new level. -By Birgitte van den Muyzenberg
- Trelleborg Sealing Solutions worked on a groundbreaking acellular biosynthetic skin substitute
- A manufacturing process was developed to produce the revolutionary product.
- The first two Permeaderm products have been released for burns and chronic wounds – with very positive results.
THE POWER OF PERMEADERM
PermeaDerm is a biosynthetic skin substitute for the temporary treatment of burns and chronic wounds. This thin, elastic, non-adhesive, porous covering material is made of a three-dimensional nylon matrix embedded in silicone, with a collagen and aloe vera extract coating.
With its non-sticky moist surface, it soothes pain, allows wounds to breathe and helps to prevent scar tissue from forming.
The first two products are currently available:
PermeaDerm B for burns and PermeaDerm C for chronic wounds. The glove product, called PermeaDerm G, is due to be launched by the end of 20
“We have observed the remarkable healing process in patients after treatment with PermeaDerm, often with reduced pain and scarring as a result.”
