WEGO Alginate Wound Dressing
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.
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.
