Why soft silicone?

Pain at dressing change is a major issue within wound care. Traditional adhesives can damage newly formed tissue or surrounding skin delaying healing and causing pain to the patient

Traditional adhesive dressings

  • Traditional adhesives easily damage or strip these cells when removed
  • Unflexible by nature they touch only the highest points of the skins surface, therefore they fix more strongly to small areas
  • Almost impossible to reposition once applied

    Soft silicone dressings

  • Gently adheres to the dry skin but not to a moist wound
  • The gentle adhesion prevents skin stripping and damage to healthy tissue at dressing change
  • Allows for easy, pain free removal minimising patient stress and discomfort

Burns

The treatment of burn wounds is complex and the correct dressing selection can have a huge impact on the time taken for the wound to heal. With correct management, dressings can speed up the healing process and prevent the formation of problematic scars
