Full description

Description

AQUACEL® dressing offers the unique gelling action of Hydrofiber® Technology that absorbs and locks in exudate and bacteria.
Hydrofiber® Technology drives the outstanding capabilities of AQUACEL® dressing.
Because AQUACEL® dressing incorporates Hydrofiber® Technology, it:
• Provides excellent absorption and retention capabilities for moderate to highly exuding wounds.
• Conforms to the wound surface to form an intimate contact.
• Helps reduce wound pain while the dressing is in situ and upon removal.
• Supports wound healing by providing a moist wound healing environment.
• May help minimise cross-infection during dressing removal.
Introducing Strength
AQUACEL® Dressing with Strengthening Fibre has all the advantages of the original AQUACEL® Ribbon Dressing and now even more strength.
Stitchbonding has been added to strengthen the original AQUACEL® Ribbon Dressing1
• Over 20 times stronger
• More than 1.3 times less shrinkage

The benefits of strength
All the advantages of AQUACEL® Dressings:
• supports wound healing by providing a moist wound environment
• protects the periwound skin
• helps reduce pain in situ and on dressing removal

Plus the added advantages of:
• increased strength to help prevent breakage
• reduced shrinkage

The technology behind the success
AQUACEL® dressing with Strengthening Fibre contains the unique ConvaTec Hydrofiber® Technology, which gels upon contact with wound exudate. This gelling action allows AQUACEL® Dressings with Strengthening Fibre to:
• lock in exudate and microorganisms that are contained within the exudate
• contour to the wound bed
• respond to the wound environment
- absorbs wound fluid and creates a soft gel
- silver version releases ionic silver in a controlled manner as wound exudate is absorbed
