Activheal Alginate is a sodium calcium alginate dressing indicated for the treatment of moderate to heavily exuding wounds as a primary dressing.
- ActivHeal Alginate is manufactured by processing natural elements found in seaweed to produce a felt and rope dressing.
- 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.
