Dressing Contribution In The Healing Process
Calcium Alginate dressings protects the wounds such as deep sores which are producing great amounts of exudates and contribute in their healing process. Alginate fibers contain gel which stops lateral wick of exudates, thereby minimizes maceration.
Wound Care Dressing

Alginate dressing prevents peri-wound skin from dust and contamination that might infect the wound. Alginate dressing covers the whole wound and its sterile fibers protect the tissues from any kind of damage. Although, there is a vast variety of traditional wound dressing available in different shapes and sizes, but different tests prove that calcium alginate dressings provide a higher level of absorbency as well as extreme wetness control strength.
Useful In Foot Care Treatment
