Can MPPT be used under compression therapy?

MPPT works by absorbing the exudate, pumping it to the enlarged surface of the MPPT layer from where it evaporates. Compression therapy normally involves covering the wound with some type of occlusive material. This will interfere with the evaporation facilitated by MPPT and, therefore it would be preferable…

Can I apply a protective dressing on top of MPPT?

MPPT works by absorbing the exudate, pumping it to the enlarged surface of the MPPT layer from where it evaporates. Occlusive dressings interfere with the evaporation and are, consequently, not advised. Protective bandaging is usually occlusive and, therefore, not recommended. If protective padding is absolutely necessary, a plain,…

How does MPPT work (MoA)?

MPPT works in three steps: Absorption, Pumping by capillary forces and Evaporation. The Exudate is absorbed into the MPPT micropore particles. These are highly porous and the pores (or capillaries) are interconnected. The capillaries work as a battery of small individual pumps that by means of capillary forces…
