ActiFormCool DressingsActiFormCool Dressings have been designed to manage nociceptive wound pain and to assist in autolytic debridement by hydrating necrotic and sloughy tissue. They are ideal for painful wounds and skin conditions such as leg ulcers, radiation therapy damage, burns and scalds and may be used with secondary dressings where appropriate. They are also highly effective at absorbing exudate so can be used under compression on moderate to highly exuding wounds.ActiFormCool Dressings are non-adhesive and consist of two sided, transparent hydrogel formed around a supporting polyethylene matrix. The gel is permeable to water vapour, gases and small protein molecules, but impermeable to bacteria. They provide a moist environment at the surface of the wound and will not adhere to the underlying tissue on removal, provided the dressing has not been allowed to dry out. Should a degree of drying take place then they can simply be rehydrated with saline or water to facilitate removal.
