4. Altrazeal (by Urulu, Inc.)
Altrazeal is the latest development in wound healing and bandage technology. It improves the quality of wound healing process while reducing its cost.
Altrazeal® is a patented powder dressing specially engineered to cover and protect the wound and to provide an ideal moist wound healing environment that supports cellular function and tissue repair. Its non-resorbable, sterile granules aggregate when hydrated with saline to form a moist, flexible, oxygen permeable film that fits and seals the wound.
The skin-like barrier serves many functions that promote healthy granulation tissue growth:
- seals and protects the entire wound surface
- allows oxygen transportation
- manages exudate through vapor transpiration
- prevents penetration of exogenous bacteria
Altrazeal® enables extended wear time, allowing the wound to heal without disturbing the wound bed with frequent dressing changes.
Altrazeal® is a sterile powder that transforms into a dressing upon hydration and covers and protects wounds for up to 30 days, including surgical, acute and slow-healing chronic wounds.
ULURU Inc. is a specialty medical technology company focused on developing and commercializing innovative wound care and drug delivery systems based on its patented technologies.
