Cadesorb is available in New Zealand in 10g tubes to address a range of wound sizes. These are presented in a box of 5.

Biodegradable 27

The cadexomer starch naturally breaks down in the body over time without causing any harmful effects. This means that it is not critical to remove the entire product, if it is felt that this would cause trauma to the patient.



Cadesorb forms a soft, moist gel upon contact with exudate.


Easy to use

The benefit of the provision of Cadesorb in a tube format is that it can be applied directly to the exact dimensions of the wound, with no overlap and without the need for cutting, folding or other forms of pre-preparation.
