MedVance® Alginate Dressing

MedVance® Alginate dressing is intended for the management of moderate to heavily exuding wounds including leg ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, cavity wounds and surgical and traumatic wounds healing by secondary intention.

MedVance® Alginate dressing is made of calcium alginate rich in fast gelling mannuronic acid. The non-woven flat pad format manages exuding wounds and the rope serves as packing for cavities and indurations. On contact with wound exudate the dressing converts to a soft, hydrophilic gel which conforms to the contours of the wound and provides a moist wound healing environment. Non-woven reinforcing technology enhances wet and dry strength, facilitating application and removal while minimizing the likelihood of leaving residue behind.
  • Hydrophilic gel is rapidly formed when dressing comes in contact with wound exudate providing a moist wound healing environment
  • High absorption capacity increases wear time.
  • Can be layered for deep wounds and for cavities.
  • Conforms to body contours and provides maximum patient comfort.
  • Delivers enhanced wet and dry strength for easy application and removal.
