Rapid capillary action ribbon
An absorbent, low adherent dressing with a wicking effect, presented in a spiral ribbon form. The dressing comprises of a soft viscose and polyester fibres with a central wicking layer with a perforated permeable wound contact layer. The unique spiral shape allows the dressing to be easily cut to length for insertion into cavity wounds or conform to deep wound beds.
Fluid from the wound bed is rapidly absorbed into the ribbon and distributed by the central layer, resulting in sustained movement of exudate from a wound bed. This helps to manage exudate levels and promote autolytic debridement.
Advadraw Spiral can be inserted into a wound or placed (either side down) onto the wound surface. The end of Advadraw Spiral can be inserted into a standard Advadraw dressing which will act as a reservoir for exudate collection. Advadraw Spiral can be cut to length.
Secure with a secondary dressing e.g. a film dressing, bandage and/or tape. Advadraw Spiral may initially require changing daily but can be left in place for up to seven days.
