HOW DOES IT WORK
bio-ConneKt® Wound Matrix can be cut to size if necessary and then placed in a sterile solution that hydrates the product and opens its pores. After the wound is prepped, a doctor applies bio-ConneKt® Wound Matrix directly on the wound. bio-Connekt® Wound Matrix is comprised of purified Type 1 collagen, the same type of collagen that the body naturally produces. Collagen is like scaffolding for a building – it provides the connecting structure that the body needs to repair itself. Once bio-ConneKt® Wound Matrix is applied to the wound, the collagen helps rebuild the damaged tissue.
