mediCipio© the modern wound dressing
The fully absorbable collagen membrane for modern wound management!

mediCipio© is a fully absorbable porcine collagen membrane. The pure collagen is extracted and purified through special treatment phases.

As a biomaterial, its special features are the combination of tolerability and its positive effect on all wound healing phases.
mediCipio© speeds up wound closure in acute and chronic wounds and supports haemostasis.

Properties of mediCipio©
  • > 99% pure collagen from porcine sources
  • BSE-free
  • easy to shape or cut to size of wound
  • absorbs large amounts of exudate, supporting haemostasis
  • creates a moist wound environment by forming a gel
  • reduces the pH value in the wound environment
  • low immunogenicity
  • fully absorbed
  • odorless

Mechanism of action

mediCipio© has a positive effect on all three phases of wound healing.

Its porous structure means mediCipio© has strong capillary action, causing aggressive exudate, pro-inflammatory cytokines, free radicals and proteases to leave the wound.

mediCipio© joins together with the wound exudate to form a gel, producing a moist wound environment. Furthermore,
when the dressing is changed every day, mediCipio© lowers the pH value in the wound, cutting the risk of secondary bacterial colonisation. Increased fibroblast migration promotes the formation of natural collagen. At the same time, proliferation and migration of the upper skin cells (epithelial cells) are accelerated, making the wound close faster.

1. Inflammatory phase:

mediCipio© absorbs existing exudate and forms a layer of gel, absorbing anti-healing factors and ensuring the wound environment is moist.

2. Proliferative / granulation phase:

mediCipio© promotes increased migration of fibroblasts and macrophages, supporting the formation of natural collagen.

3. Remodelling / epithelialisation phase:

mediCipio© accelerates the proliferation and migration of the epithelial cells, making the wound close faster.

Easy to use

1.

Clean the wound. If the wound is suppurating or a necrotic coagulum has formed, debride the wound.

2.

Adjust mediCipio© to fit the size of the wound, or, in case of large injuries, place in the wound cavity.

3.

If there is little or no wound exudate, moisten mediCipio© with a suitable cleansing solution, such as Ringer's solution.

4.

Gentle pressure encourages contact with the wound surface.

5.

Fix mediCipio© in place with a secondary dressing. Depending on the amount of exudate, it may be advisable to use absorbent

compresses, hydropolymer foams or semipermeable film dressings.

Clean the wound. If the wound is suppurating or a necrotic coagulum has formed, debride the wound. Adjust mediCipio to fit the size of the wound, or, in case of large injuries, place in the wound cavity. Fix mediCipio in place with a secondary dressing.
