GranuFlex® Dressings Support Gentle Wound Management

Nothing grabs your attention like something “on the edge”, and this may or may not make the transition for wound management into an unfavorable situation. Wound dressings manage this situation by being applied at the right time to increase the chances of successful healing.

On contact with a moist wound surface, GranuFlex® dressings form a gel that creates an optimal moist wound healing environment.

DuoDERM Wound Management

  1. An outer film provides a waterproof barrier over the dressing.
  2. The foam layer is designed to provide both thermal and mechanical protection.
  3. A honeycomb matrix of hydrocolloid particles absorbs exudate to form a soft, moist gel.
  4. The dressings keep nerve endings moist, which helps to provide relief from discomfort.1
  5. GranuFlex® Dressings can be worn continuously for up to seven days unless they are uncomfortable, there is leakage or there are clinical signs of infection.
