  • Minimises lateral spread to peri-wound area

INTIMATE CONTACT, RAPID AND HIGH ABSORPTION

  • Swells into available spaces1-3
  • Removes free fluid1, 2
  • Contours to the wound surface3
  • Fills dead space between the dressing and wound surface3

RETENTIVE GEL FOR BACTERIAL SEQUESTRATION

  • Bacteria is entrapped within the gel & fully immobilised1, 4, 5
  • Bacteria is separated from the wound surface and contained within the dressing1, 4, 5
