Protease Modulating Dressings are a crucial component of effective wound care. They work by regulating the levels of proteases in wound exudate, which can slow down the healing process and damage newly formed tissue. These dressings physically remove, bind, or inactivate proteases to improve the healing process and promote healthy tissue growth. By controlling the levels of proteases in wounds, Protease Modulating Dressings can help speed up the healing process and improve outcomes for patients. They are an essential tool for healthcare professionals and an important part of the wound care treatment plan.
Aquacel™  is a range of Dressings composed of Hydrofiber which absorbs wound fluid and becomes a soft gel. Aquacel™  Extra dressings has extra strength and greater absorbency than Aquacel. Both Aquacel and Aquacel Extra are available with impregnated Silver for use on infected wounds. Aquacel™ Ag+ Extra combines the strengths of Aquacel™ with new Ag+ technology which destroys wound Biofilm and kills infection causing bacteria.
