PolyMem provides unrivaled benefits for clinicians and patients. Unlike foam dressings, whose primary purpose is to absorb, PolyMem dressings are designed to facilitate healing, relieve pain, and reduce inflammation in a unique way. Each PolyMem dressing includes a hydrophilic polyurethane matrix with a mild, tissue-friendly wound cleanser, a soothing moisturizer, a superabsorbent, and a semi-permeable film backing. This patented formulation of ingredients works synergistically to provide unrivaled benefits for clinicians and patients.
The PolyMem formulation was first patented in 1988 by Robert W. Sessions, a former director of biomedical research at Chicago’s Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke’s Medical Center. Ferris Mfg. Corp. and founder, Sessions, have received numerous awards and recognitions for excellence in medical product design and contributions to the medical profession.
