£12.99

ActivHeal Alginate is manufactured by processing natural elements found in seaweed to produce felt and rope dressings. The alginate fibres allow exudate to be absorbed into the dressing to form a cohesive gel: this ensures that the wound stays moist to provide an ideal wound-healing environment. The versatility of ActivHeal Alginate allows the dressing to be used on a variety of wounds, including cavity wounds, in which the dressing can be packed into the cavity to promote healing from within. Alginate is naturally a biodegradable fibre, which ensures that any small residual fibres that remain in the wound pose no risk to the patient.
