The Smith & Nephew Allevyn Gentle Foam Dressings are absorbent dressings ideal for wounds with moderate to high exudate. It is also great for pressure ulcers on the leg or feet, shallow wounds, surgical wounds, and infected wounds. People with first or second degree burns, oncological wounds, or epidermolysis wounds will also find the dressings incredibly beneficial.
The Foam Dressings use a triple-action technology for maximum comfort and efficiency. The dressings have a hydrocellular pad construction that is thin and highly absorbent. The wound contacts layer is perforated for wound breathability and has a silicone gel adhesive border that facilitates comfortable fixation. The Allevyn Gentle Dressing adhesive is non-irritating to the skin and allows the dressing to be easily removed and adjusted again without losing its stickiness. The highly permeable outer layer enhances wound breathability. This layer also acts as a bacterial barrier to protect the wound from external bacteria eliminating the risk of infection.
The Smith & Nephew Dressings are designed for flexibility to conform to the natural shape of the body and the wound. This makes the dressing ideal for wounds on any part of the body. Since the dressing is permeable and allows wound breathing, it also creates an optimal moisture rich environment to promote faster wound healing.
Designed to be durable, the foam dressings can be also be worn while showering or swimming. They have a wear time of up to seven days which reduces the number of dressing changes required and the costs associated with them.
