Retro-Tech Dressing (RTD) is an FDA cleared, U.S. patented, advanced, active, moist, anti-biofilm, Capillary-Suction Wound Therapy (CSWT) dressing that performs exceptionally well over a broad spectrum of wounds.
The Advanced RTD dressing is (20:1+) weight absorbing, active, body conforming, and is impregnated with three antimicrobials that degrade and defeat biofilm’s self protective, preserving and propagating mechanisms. RTD’s Capillary-Suction Wound Therapy (CSWT) capability absorbs microbial infected exudate through mechanical, capillary and hydrophilic action. All three antimicrobials are bonded to the foam matrix. The dressing keeps a moist environment and controls biofilm, which prompts and speeds new tissue growth.
There are a significant number of wound types for which resolution can be achieved utilizing the Advanced RTD dressing. RTD technology combines three proven anti-microbial compounds with a medical grade polyether/polyurethane foam matrix; together they have the ability to remove microbes and biofilm, then kill them thereby cleaning the wound area and assisting the body to heal the affected area.
RTD is an excellent option for wound care because it is inexpensive, easy to use, and can be applied directly to wound area. RTD can be used for up to 3 days between changes. The special foam matrix regulates hydration, and prevents the development of biofilm. In addition to these exciting features, RTD can be used in wet-to-dry applications, and will not adhere to incisions or sutures. As such the dressing can be removed without pain or trauma to the patient. Best of all, RTD can be used in a non-sterile environment.
