Treat with confidence with Eclypse Superabsorbers

Zero strikethrough to improve patient QoL

Eclypse has a zero strikethrough backing to prevent leaks1 with no need to layer

  • Strikethrough can lead to social isolation and anxiety2
  • Layering can increase risk of maceration, infection, discomfort, leakage and pain3

A 100 patient audit showed Eclypse had zero strikethrough at day 7

Eclypse is comfortable

In an online survey4, clinicians were asked how comfortable patients found Eclypse (rating between 1 and 5, where 5 was the most comfortable). The results are shown below:

86%

rated Eclypse 4+ on a scale of 1-5 for comfort during use

83%

rated Eclypse 4+ on a scale of 1-5 for comfort at dressing change
