Principelle Matrix is a nextgeneration sterile composite hydrogel wound dressing. Its design is based on a naturally occurring bioactive process. Mimicking this processsynthetically allowed for a close match to the complex processes that take place in chronic wounds.
The principleof optimal biocompatibility through intelligent designs has been used for implants and other applications. It is relatively new in wound care. Chronic ortherapy resistant wounds characteristically show a disturbed balance in the amounts of exudate, proteins, ions, microbial load and the intricate relationship andfunction between these elements. Principelle Matrix dressings with bioactive properties modulate proteins and ions. The product mimicks the behaviour of certainmacromolecules (polysaccharides) naturally present in the human body. These elements have a diverse function:
- Stabilise growth factors and cytokines
- Regulate proteases
- Modulate the inflammation reaction
Principelle Matrix is a hydrated, superabsorbing copolymer (presence of various kindsof polymers) dressing. The unique design allows for an unparallelled capacity tohydrate and absorb within one dressing. This function is a perfect match to the moisture needs of the human skin. At present,two types are available: PrincipelleMatrix 10x10cm. Principelle Matrix Border (skin-friendly adhesive border; island size 6.8×6.8cm).
Supervised by a healthcare professional the product can be applied to treat acute and chronic wounds(non-infected), or wounds with a low microbial load.Theborder-version fixates the dressing with a skin-friendly adhesive transparent layer. The non-border version can be applied to larger wounds and is usually fixated withgauze.t elit tellus, luctus nec ullamcorper mattis, pulvinar dapibus leo.
