More Information

  • Benefits:
    Moist wound environment

    - It maintains a moist wound environment that assists in promoting autolytic debridement while managing low levels of exudate
    Goes on easy, comes off clean
    - The sterile, no-touch, self-adhering application system makes it simple to apply even while wearing gloves
    - High cohesive properties keep the dressing from falling apart and leaving residue in the wound
    Superior conformability
    - Stretches easily and returns to its original shape more completely even over joints
    - This suppleness and flexibility allows dressings to give without migrating, minimizing granulation tissue injury and damage to peri-wound skin integrity
    Improves patient comfort
    - Permits increased ease of patient mobility without uncomfortable pulling of the skin, especially over joints
    - The dressing thin profile also makes it cosmetically acceptable to patients
    Cost-effective choice
    - Promotes more cost-effective use of material and resources and nursing services
    - The dressing is totally transparent, so there is no need to disturb the dressing to check for saturation or healing progress
