Type I Collagen is the most abundant type of collagen in the human body. As the main component of connective tissue, it is the most abundant protein in mammals, making up from 25% to 35% of the whole-body protein content. Collagen, in the form of elongated fibrils, is mostly found in fibrous tissues such as tendons, bones, ligaments and skin. The fibroblast is the most common cell which creates collagen. During wound healing, collagen encourages the deposition and organization of newly formed collagen fibers and granulation tissue in the wound bed. It also stimulates new tissue development and wound debridement, creating an environment conducive to healing.

NuMed Collagen Dressings are made of a porous type 1, 100% bovine collagen membrane. They consist of a fibrous collagen network similar to the dermis, creating an environment conducive to healing.
