A new understanding of health and our own bodies, the increase of chronic diseases due to growing life expectancy and the greater active involvement of patients are all providing new challenges for medical technology. Modern product solutions need to support the self-healing powers of the body, accelerate the healing process and enhance wellbeing. High performance nonwovens and polyurethane foams from Freudenberg Performance Materials have been designed to meet these requirements.
Whether in first aid dressings for everyday use or in modern, multi-layer dressings for chronic wounds, our products offer appropriate solutions and contribute to the recovery process. We place extremely high value on the biocompatibility and tolerability of our raw materials. Freudenberg components are used in Class 1-3 medical devices and in FDA-certified products.
Innovative components from Freudenberg Performance Materials offer safety and comfort to patients who become dependent on ostomy pouches following an operation. In these applications, odor control is of utmost importance. Freudenberg Performance Materials has developed innovative activated carbon filters that adsorb odors and thus significantly improve the wellbeing of stoma patients.
Our portfolio includes solutions for different requirements, developed on the basis of the latest production and finishing technologies, from roll goods to required shapes and designs, such as ileostomy or colostomy filters. Soft nonwovens for covering the bags (comfort covers) and nonwovens with high tensile strength and good weldability for flanges complete our range.
Modern wound dressings are used to treat complex, hard-to-heal wounds such as pressure sores and diabetic foot or leg, for example.
Freudenberg Performance Materials manufactures innovative product solutions for these applications. These include nonwovens made from hydrogelling fibers, hydrophilic polyurethane foams and nonwoven/foam laminates with excellent absorption and retention characteristics.
The systems absorb wound exudate and create an ideal environment for the healing of chronic wounds. They thus contribute to the quality of life of patients and support the healing process. Both treatment time and costs can be significantly reduced.
Through our latest innovations, such as antimicrobial foam systems or nonwovens made from chitosan fibers used in hemostatic wound dressings, we make a significant contribution to treatment success.
