Wound treatment, incontinence care and OP protection
Dressing materials and wound care products still form the core business. In addition, the company is also active in several medical-related fields, including natural healing products (subsidiary: Kneipp GmbH) and disinfectants and hygiene products (subsidiary: Bode Chemie GmbH). For wound treatment, the HARTMANN GROUP supplies wound dressings, plasters and fixing bandages, among other things. Another focus is incontinence care (briefs and pads, care products). Paul Hartmann AG also supplies materials for risk protection during operations (e.g. complete surgical sets, clothing, surgical drapes). Other fields include compression and support bandages or cotton wool for cosmetic purposes.
Hartmann products are used by doctors, hospitals, nursing homes and outpatient care services, but also by businesses and private consumers. Many Hartmann products are part of the standard range of pharmacies and medical supplies stores.
