Infection / Inflammation

Because all wounds contain bacteria, actively managing bioburden with antimicrobial dressing can reduce the risk of infection and help manage local infections. Our range of broad-spectrum antimicrobial ionic sliver dressings, gels and powders can address these issues.

Moisture Management

Too much moisture can lead to periwound maceration and skin breakdown, while too little moisture can impede cellular activities and promote eschar formation, resulting in poor wound healing. Explore our variety of dressings that absorb or donate moisture to help create an optimal moist wound healing environment.
