ActiFormCool is an ionic sheet hydrogel for painful wounds. It will either donate or absorb fluid to maintain an optimal level of moisture in the wound bed. ActiFormCool has been successfully used on many painful wounds and skin conditions such as leg ulcers, radiation therapy damage, pressure necrosis and exposed tendons and burns and scalds. It may be used with secondary dressings where appropriate. ActiFormCool can be used under compression on moderate to highly exuding wounds. ActiFormCool has been used safely on neonates and is a low sensitivity dressing. ActiFormCool has been shown to reduce the amount of oral analgesia patients require.
