Optimized Dressing Use
Dressings have a visual indicator which indicates when a dressing needs changing, reducing premature dressing changes.
A thin, smooth, low-friction backing is designed to reduce shearing that can prematurely dislodge the dressing.
A thin polyurethane film provides a bacterialand viral barrier when the dressing remains intact and without leakage.
The film provides a waterproof barrier over the dressing.
It is easy to apply and can be removed without damaging newly formed tissue.
It helps to reduce bunching and the effect of shear through tapered edges and a smooth surface.
It helps to prevent damage to the wound bed on removal through a unique gelling action, ensuring maximum comfort.
Ease of Application
Areas subject to friction force, including the heels, buttocks, sacrum, elbows, and trochanters, are likely to develop wounds (or breakdown around wounds)
DuoDERM Signal comes in various shapes designed to be placed in these difficult to dress areas.
Hints and Tips for Difficult to Dress Areas
