WEGO Alginate Wound Dressing

WEGO alginate wound dressing is the main product of WEGO group wound care series.

WEGO alginate wound dressing is an advanced wound dressing manufactured from sodium alginate extracted from natural seaweeds. When in contact with a wound, calcium in the dressing is exchanged with sodium from wound fluid turning the dressing into a gel. This maintains a moist wound healing environment which is good for the recovery of exuding wounds and helps with the debridement of sloughing wounds.

Easy to remove

When used in a moderate to highly exuding wound, the dressing forms a soft gel which does not adhere to the delicate healing tissues in the wound bed. The dressing can be easily removed from the wound in one piece, or washed out with saline water.

Confirms to wound contours

WEGO alginate wound dressing is very soft and conformable, allowing it to be molded, folded or cut to meet a wide range of wound shapes and sizes.As the fibers gel, an even more intimate contact with the wound is formed and maintained.

Moist wound environment

The formation of a gel by the action of exudate on alginate fibers creates a moist environment at the wound bed.This helps prevent eschar formation and promotes an optimal moist wound environment.

Highly absorbent

In-vitro studies have shown that alginate wound dressing can absorb more than ten times its own weight in exudate.This allows the dressing to remain in the wound for up to 7 days, depending on the nature of the wound and the volume of exudate.

Documented hemostatic effect

Alginate-based dressings have documented hemostatic effect, i.e. ability to reduce blood flow in minor bleedings.
