Cerdak ceramic wound dressing consists of ceramic granules sealed in a sterile pouch. The micro-porous ceramic in the dressing absorbs excess wound moisture while micro-organisms suspended in the moisture adsorbs into the surface of the ceramic, giving it anti-microbial properties. Adsorption and atmospheric oxygen on the clean and moist wound bed creates ideal conditions for natural, fast and effective healing.
Inflammation-causing micro-organisms and elements contained in the exudate are permanently removed from the wound by adsorption and absorption.
Rapid reduction of bacterial load due to strong binding between micro-organisms and ceramic without the negative effect of topical antibiotics.
Marginal or fragile tissue are protected from the wound bed and elements on the wound bed, preventing further tissue damage.
Strong binding between micro-organisms and ceramic prevents colonization and infection.
Optimise cell proliferation and limits dysfunctional healing by constant cleansing of the wound bed.
Loosely packed granules are permeable to atmospheric oxygen, even when saturated with moisture.
