ACTICOAT™ Flex 3 Antimicrobial barrier dressing consist of a single layer of knitted polyester to ensure ultimate flexibility and comfort during wear time for the patient.
- Sustained antimicrobial activity against a broad spectrum of wound pathogens including MRSA and pseudomonas aeruginosa: Helps remove some barriers, allowing the patient to regain control and progress the wound to closure.
- Rapidly kills bacteria in as little as thirty minutes: Antibacterial action helps provide rapid protection from bacterial colonization.
- Soft and highly flexible with stretch properties: Moves with the patient when they need to move the affected body part with minimum local trauma, minimizes discomfort for the patient.
- Allows exudate transport through the dressing: This helps reduce the risk of maceration for faster closure with less potential for leakage and odor.
- Easy to apply, can be removed in one piece to minimize trauma and reduce the time taken for dressing changes.
- Low adherent wound contact layer: Helps prevent trauma on removal to optimize closure times.
- Indications: For use on partial and full thickness wounds and this includes, first and second degree burns, covering of grafts, surgical sites, venous ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic ulcers.
