Product Details
  • Foam dressing with gentle silicone adhesive and intelligent fluid management
  • Long wear time

While traditional foam dressings provide comfort and convenience, this gentle border dressing goes one step further – with a smart absorbent core and Exu-Safe Technology™ it manages exudate far better than leading competitors as tested in vitro.1

Designed to help aid the healing process by reducing maceration,2 locking away bacteria2,3 and MMPs4 from the wound this gentle border dressing is an advanced foam dressing with intelligent fluid management: absorbent core and foam pad with Exu-Safe Technology™ both absorb and lock-in exudate, even under compression.4 Unique horizontal wicking layer then efficiently distributes exudate, reducing the risk of maceration and increasing capacity for absorption. Finally, gentle silicone adhesive wound contact layer ensures less pain at dressing change for the patient. it adheres to the surrounding skin, but not the wound bed.

EXU-SAFE TECHNOLOGY™: This gentle border foam dressing absorbs and locks away more MRSA than all other foams,3 with 99,7%5 of MRSA locked away in the dressing core and away from the wound.
