ActivHeal Aquafiber® is a uniquely designed dressing developed to provide you with all the benefits of an alginate dressing whilst also offering a high wet strength and clear gelling properties, to ensure a moist wound environment is maintained.
The reinforcement gives the dressing improved wet integrity providing the clinician with the confidence that the dressing can be removed intact. Calcium ions present within the alginate fibres of ActivHeal Aquafiber® exchange with sodium ions found in the wound exudate. The donation of calcium benefits the wound by stimulating cytokines which are essential to the wound healing process. Exudate is absorbed vertically into the ActivHeal Aquafiber® dressing reducing the risk of maceration and damage to the peri wound skin.
