ACTIVHEAL® PHMB FOAM SILICONE BORDER
FREE TWO WEEK EVALUATION
ActivHeal® PHMB Foam Silicone Border dressing contains the antimicrobial substance polyhexamethylene biguanide (PHMB, polihexanide), which effectively manages wound exudate and microbial contamination which reduces wound pain during healing.
High absorbency // Soft, flexible and conformable // Waterproof and bacterial barrier // Perforated wound contact layer with a gentle silicone adhesive // reduces trauma on dressing removal // prevents colonisation and proliferation of bacteria // Reduces wound pain during healing // Promotes a moist wound environment effective against gram negative, gram positive and yeast
The PHMB in ActivHeal® PHMB Foam Silicone Border released in the presence of wound exudate is a fast acting, effective antimicrobial agent against a broad spectrum of microorganisms frequently associated with the bacterial colonisation and infection of wounds, for up to seven (7) days, based on in-vitro testing.
ActivHeal® PHMB Foam Silicone Border dressing has a flexible, breathable backing film which ensures that moisture can be transpired through the top of the dressing and works in combination with the unique ability of the foam to absorb high levels of exudate while maintaining an optimal environment for wound healing. The perforated wound contact layer contains a gentle silicone adhesive that provides secure, non-irritating adhesion and supports non-traumatic removal during dressing changes. The dressings can be repositioned during application or lifted during wear time for observation.
