WoundClot: A Revolutionary Haemostatic Product

Multiple Mechanisms of Action

Unlike other haemostatic products, WoundClot offers a unique combination of mechanisms:

  • Gel Formation: When in contact with blood, Woundclot transforms into a thick, tenacious gel that adheres to wound surfaces.
  • No Manual Pressure Required: WoundClot does not rely on manual pressure for its effectiveness.
  • High Absorbency: WoundClot is highly absorbent, capable of absorbing up to two and a half thousand percentage weight in fluid.
  • Long-Lasting Effect: WoundClot remains actively absorbent for up to 24 hours.
  • Clotting Factor Activation: WoundClot activates key clotting factors, promoting rapid haemostasis.
  • Safe and Versatile: WoundClot has the highest safety profile and can be used on any part of the body.
  • User-Friendly: Little to no training is required to effectively utilise WoundClot.

The Role in Clotting Cascade

WoundClot plays a crucial role in the clotting cascade through its mechanism of action:

WoundClot is engineered with specific functional molecular groups that activate factors 11 and factors 12, contributing to rapid haemostasis.

Ease of Use and Removal

WoundClot offers convenient application and removal:

  • Simple Removal: WoundClot can be easily removed by removing the clot itself.
  • Prevention of Re-Bleeding: Re-bleeding is unlikely to occur once WoundClot is in place.
  • Easy Irrigation: Any remaining gel can be effortlessly irrigated out of the wound.

With its multiple mechanisms of action, high absorbency, clotting factor activation, and ease of use, WoundClot is a revolutionary haemostatic product that provides efficient and safe results for various types of wounds.
