  • Can also be used for other indications such as diabetic foot ulcers, leg ulcers (venous stasis ulcers, arterial ulcers and leg ulcers of mixed etiology), pressure ulcers/sores (partial & full thickness), surgical wounds left to heal by secondary intention such as dehisced surgical incisions, surgical wounds that heal by primary intention such as dermatological and surgical incisions (e.g., orthopedic and vascular), dermatological wounds, traumatic wounds, painful wounds

More Information

  • Hydrofiber Technology:
    Hydrofiber Technology is a patented technology in which fibers of high-quality cellulose are carboxymethylated altering its structure to allow better absorbency and retention of fluid. These fibers are then processed to mesh them together to form a stable fleece layer. When exposed to fluid, the fibers swell to form a clear, soft, cohesive gel structure that closely conforms to the wound bed. As the fibers swell, the fluid and its contents (eg bacteria and other inflammatory cells and enzymes) are trapped and held within the dressing. In addition, the gelling action prevents lateral spread of fluid through the dressing to reduce the risk of maceration and promote a moist wound healing environment
  • Minimizing Painful Dressing Changes
    It can be left in place on PTBs and donor sites for up to 21 days or until clinically indicated,thus minimizing the number of dressing changes
    - Because it contains Hydrofiber technology, the dressing gels on contact with the wound, reducing pain while in situation and helping to reduce pain and trauma upon removal
  • Reducing The Risk Of Infection
    - Harmful components contained in exudate, such as bacteria that may cause infection, are locked away in the wound dressing
    - This dressing contains ionic silver, a proven antimicrobial that kills a broad spectrum of pathogens, including MRSA, VRE, aureus, aeruginosa, krusei, niger and fragils
    - Helps Allow mobility while the dressing is in place
    - Provides flexibility,promoting patient mobility
    - Good integrity when wet
    - Minimal shrinkage
    - This dressing conforms closely to the wound bed, minimizing the spaces where bacteria can thrive
    - It creates and maintains an environment that is favorable to healing and is designed to detach during healing and re-epithelialization
    - The dressing is easy to apply because it is available in larger rectangular sizes and various glove sizes appropriate for burn patients
    - It is also appropriate for the management of donor sites
