Acticoat Silver Absorbent Dressing is a highly absorbent and cost-effective wound dressing utilizing advanced silver ion technology to help create an optimal wound-healing environment. The nanocrystalline coating of pure silver delivers antimicrobial barrier activity within 30 minutes, much faster than other forms of silver, while assisting in helping to prevent contamination of the wound. Since the Acticoat Silver Absorbent Dressing absorbs many times their own weight in exudate, they can be left on the wound for up to 3 days at a time, depending on the nature and severity of the wound, as well as the volume of exudate, which also means less exposure to the environment and lower risk of infection, all while killing micro-organisms in the wound.

Acticoat Silver Absorbent Dressing forms a soft gel via the production of exudate on the alginate fibers, preventing it from adhering to the delicate tissues in the wound bed, and in turn allowing it to be easily lifted out of the wound in one piece, or safely washed out with sterile water. The Dressings can be molded, folded or cut to conform to the fit of most wounds. As the fibers gel, an even more intimate contact with the wound is produced and maintained.

Vitality Medical also carries other wound care products, such as Liquid Bonding Cement and Gentell Wound Cleanser.
