From the makers of Ultrasorbs comes the newest breakthrough innovation in skin and incontinence care. Therasorbs Moisture Management is a system designed to reduce the risk factors of moisture associated skin damage (MASD) for most at risk patients.
An innovative polymer made from droplet polymerization technology allows for this system to be able to wick and absorb fluid better than conventional underpads and existing drypads.
Therasorbs dry time was measured with pH indicator paper.
In just 10 minutes the surface of Therasorbs was dry, resulting
in less moisture exposure for patients.
Within just ten minutes of applying 500mL of liquid,
Therasorbs had an 83–93% better absorption rate
than the competition.
