Highly absorbent In-vitro studies and clinical experience, both demonstrate that as healing progresses, ALLEVYN◊ dressings can stay in place for up to seven days. This capacity results from a combination of properties: The perforated wound contact layer allows even viscous exudate to pass into the dressing. The hydrocellular core of the dressing absorbs and holds liquid in its microscopic structure. The breathable outer surface of the dressing allows excess moisture to evaporate away from the dressing. The result is the formation of a wound environment, which allows healing to progress without the need for frequent dressing changes. Moist Wound Environment ALLEVYN◊ Heel creates and maintains a moist wound healing environment at the wound surface, helping prevent eschar formation. Designed to fit the heel ALLEVYN◊ Heel dressing is designed to gently fit around the back of the foot allowing the wound to be dressed creating a moist wound healing environment. Cushioned comfort ALLEVYN◊ Heel dressings are soft and cushioning, giving excellent patient comfort. Clean wound healing ALLEVYN◊ Heel absorbs and retains exudate, bacteria and cellular debris, providing clean, mess free dressing changes.
