These dressings are majorly used for the treatment of chronic leg ulcers and chronic pressure ulcers where they provide a moist and active environment for optimum healing. Antimicrobial superabsorbents and non-antimicrobial superabsorbents are tracked under this segment. Antimicrobial superabsorbents are impregnated with an antimicrobial agent that inhibits microbial growth. Non-Antimicrobial superabsorbents are devoid of antimicrobial activity due to absence of antimicrobial agents.
