Calcium alginate wound dressings are composed of a gelatinous and water-insoluble fiber derived from seaweed. When in contact with a wound, the dressing transforms into a hydrophilic gel-like layer over the wound that maintains a physiologically moist environment that is conducive to wound healing and enhances formation of granulation tissue. Alginate dressings absorb moderate to heavy exudates.
Silver alginate antimicrobial dressings are composed of calcium alginate, which is derived from seaweed through a series of special processes, and silver particles derived from silver salts. It is designed to be highly absorbent with a fast acting mechanism to assist in wound management of complex wounds. The dressing absorbs exudates and forms a gel-like layer over the wound. This maintains a moist environment conducive to wound healing. The dressing can restrain bacterial growth in the wound bed and reduce the risk of infection due to the antimicrobial properties of the silver.
Our hydrogel spray encourages healing by donating moisture to the wound by using a more effective delivery method. Wounds heal best in an optimal moist wound environment. Our hydrogel spray is beneficial for partial and full thickness wounds.
Foam dressings are composed of soft and highly absorbent polyurethane and are permeable to both gas and water vapor. It can effectively absorb wound exudates and maintain a moist environment, which assists in wound healing. It is especially suitable for excessively exuding wounds where constant replacement of dressings is required.
Our Silicone Bordered Foam dressings are sterile, foam dressings made with a highly absorbent foam pad, film backing, and gentle silicone adhesive border for vulnerable skin. These dressings are used to protect, serve as a barrier, and absorb drainage therefore, which helps facilitate a moist environment and may promote healing.
Hydrocolloid bordered dressings contain gel-forming agents which, when in contact with wound exudate, absorb liquid and forms a gel. This minimizes pain and discomfort when removing the dressing. The top film backing helps to provide a healthy moist healing environment for the wound, facilitating the healing process and reducing scarring. Waterproof bacterial barrier protects wounds against external contamination.
Composite dressings are wound covers that provide multiple functions such as a bacterial barrier, absorption and adhesion. Usually, they are composed of multiple layers and incorporate a semi- or non-adherent pad that covers the wound.
Our medical retention tape is breathable and gentle to the skin. It can be cut to size to secure dressings, various medical tubings, and other medical devices. This dressing is water resistant and promotes airflow to prevent skin breakdown.
