The Acticoat Flex Dressings are nanocrystalline silver enriched wound dressings that provide antibacterial protection to wounds. These dressings have a low adherence that cause less trauma during removal or dressing changes. They are made of a single layer of knitted polyester that facilitates the even distribution of wound exudate throughout the dressing, eliminating the risk of leakages and reducing the formation of odors.
The Flex Dressings are designed for partial and full thickness wounds, such as first and second degree burns, surgical sites and chronic wounds such as venous, diabetic and pressure ulcers.
These dressings support quick wound healing by rapidly killing a broad spectrum of bacteria within thirty minutes of wear time. These dressings are thin and have a soft and highly conformable fabric that easily wraps around even the difficult to wrap body parts. The dressings also stretch themselves to move along with the wound and keep it protected at all times during movement.
These dressings are easy-to-apply and available in a wide range of sizes to accommodate the varying wound sizes and body contours. They are available in two categories, Acticoat 3 and Acticoat 7. The Acticoat 3 dressings provide effective antibacterial protection for a minimum of three days and the Acticoat 7 for a minimum of seven days. It is important to note Acticoat Flex Dressings must stay moist to bring the silver ions into effect.
