Product Description

Lohmann & Rauscher Vliwasorb® Superabsorbent Wound Dressing, 4" x 8".

  • Do not cut dressing
  • Dimensions in cm: 10 x 20
  • Wound pad in cm: 8.5 x 18.5

Superabsorbent polymers absorb many times their own weight in liquid and scarcely release any retained exudate, even under mechanical pressure. The wound edges are protected from maceration. Vliwasorb can be used to excellent effect under compression bandages.

Vliwasorb saves time and money thanks to fewer required dressing changes. Less frequent dressing changes allow wounds to rest longer. The absorption and retention of microbes in the wound dressing reduces the risk of infection.

The absorption of exudate, slough and debris aids in wound cleansing and the moist wound environment promotes wound healing.

Fields of application:

  • wounds with high levels of exudate
  • superficial wounds during exudation phase, e.g.:
    • arterial and venous ulcers
    • burns and scalds (3rd degree: following surgical debridement)
  • postoperative wounds healing by secondary intention
  • laparotomy wounds
  • fistulas


  • high absorption and retention capacity for wound exudate
  • absorbent core with superabsorbent polymers that absorbs 20 times its own weight
  • saves time and money thanks to fewer dressing changes
  • protects from wound edge maceration and promotes wound healing
  • attractive to patients:
    • thin
    • flexible
    • cushioning
  • reduces the risk of the product adhering to the wound
    with clothing protection layer
