Cutimed® Gel

is a sterile hydrogel that adapts to wound bed. Cutimed Gel maintains a moist wound environment that supports the body’s own wound healing. By releasing moisture, it softens non-viable tissue types and facilitates debridement.

  • Effective debridement
  • Effective moisture balance 
  • Adapts to wound bed 

Intended Purpose

Cutimed Gel produces a moist, physiological wound environment and supports autolytic cleansing of necrotic or unclean wounds (e.g. lightly weeping leg ulcers, diabetic foot syndrome, pressure ulcers or first and second-degree burns).

Wear time: Cutimed Gel should be changed as often as clinically indicated, the secondary dressing should not be fully saturated. Cutimed Gel can remain on the wound for the period between dressing changes.
