Activheal Alginate Dressings
ActivHeal Alginate is manufactured by processing natural elements found in seaweed to produce felt and rope dressings. The alginate fibres allow exudate to be absorbed into the dressing to form a cohesive gel: this ensures that the wound stays moist to provide an ideal wound-healing environment.
The versatility of ActivHeal Alginate allows the dressing to be used on a variety of wounds, including cavity wounds, in which the dressing can be packed into the cavity to promote healing from within. Alginate is naturally a biodegradable fibre, which ensures that any small residual fibres that remain in the wound pose no risk to the patient.
