Adaptic Touch Non-Adhering Silicon Dressing, by Johnson and Johnson, is made of mesh material and balances comfort and performance when it comes to direct wound application . This uniquely designed primary wound dressing is made with a silicone mesh pattern that will keep fluid from the wound (exudate) from pooling and sticking to any of the secondary dressing material. Despite being a tight knit mesh, it still allows transference of the exudate to the upper absorbent pad, reducing the chance of maceration. The silicon sheets will go on easy and gently peel off the wound without damaging newly healed tissue. The dressing can be left on the wound for several days, or until the secondary dressing is soaked, depending on the condition of the wound. Systagenix Adaptive Touch Dressing is recommended for use with dry to heavily exuding, partial and full-thickness chronic wounds. This would include surgical wounds or those involving severe trauma.
