Hollister Wound Care recently announced the arrival of Restore Contact Layer FLEX dressing to its TRIACT Technology family of products. The new ultra-conformable contact layer features more flexible mesh and a gentle tack intended to improve the ability of the dressing to stay in place, especially in hard-to-wrap areas.

TRIACT Technology is a scientific formulation used in select Restore wound care dressings. These advanced dressings are designed to form an ideal moist wound-healing environment, with Restore Contact Layer FLEX dressings frequently being used for the treatment of many chronic and acute wounds, including wounds associated with EB.

Restore Contact Layer FLEX dressings have the following benefits:

  • Non-Adherent
    Virtually pain-free dressing removal for enhanced patient comfort.
     
  • Maintains a Moist Wound Interface
    Forms a gel in the presence of exudate.
     
  • Ultra-Flexible
    Comfortable for the patient during application and while in place.
     
  • Highly Conformable
    Can be shaped to fit contours of deep or irregular wounds and in difficult anatomical locations.
     
  • Easy to Apply
    Gentle tack of dressing helps keep it in place over the wound.

In a clinical study of use of a new flexible lipidocolloid dressing on acute wounds and chronic wounds cited by S. Meaume in the Journal of Wound Care (April 2010), Restore Contact Layer FLEX dressing was compared to the original Restore Contact Layer dressing. In most cases, Restore Contact Layer FLEX dressing was reported to be: more conformable, easier to apply on awkward locations, and more comfortable.

Anyone who has watched a child trying to cope with the pain of EB knows how heart-wrenching it can be. Wound dressings like Restore Contact Layer FLEX dressing with TRIACT Technology have been designed to offer the same benefits of the original Restore Contact Layer dressings – non-adherence for virtually pain-free removal – but with a flexible mesh that offers additional conformability and comfort and a gentle tack to help secure the dressing in place. It is ideal for use on wounds with fragile surrounding skin, and is therefore a good choice for EB families and caregivers.
