Better adhesion of hydrogel plasters through ultrasound

Dear Sir or Madam,

Hydrogel plasters are often used for chronic or slow-healing wounds. They ensure a constantly moist wound environment and thus accelerate the healing process without sticking to the wound. Researchers have now discovered that the adhesion of hydrogel plasters to the skin can be further improved when ultrasound is used. Find out exactly how this works and how useful it could be for drug delivery in our video.

Plus: What's it like exhibiting at COMPAMED for the first time? We asked Simon Dursch from CINTEG AG in our interview.
