ADAPTIC TOUCH™ Dressing Is All You Could Wish for in a Silicone Contact Layer

ADAPTIC TOUCH™ Non-Adhering Silicone Dressing is a primary wound contact layer for use in the management of dry to heavily exuding, partial and full-thickness chronic wounds.
 
In a series of international case studies, ADAPTIC TOUCH™ Dressing was used as an alternative to traditional wound contact layers under V.A.C.® Therapy to protect fragile wound structures and benefit patients with a range of wound types. Over the course of those treatments, clinicians reported that ADAPTIC TOUCH™ Dressing was easy to use and remove,
did not adhere, and did not cause patients pain during use or upon removal.
 

How it Works

About

ADAPTIC TOUCH™ Dressing primary wound contact layer helps protect the wound while minimizing patient pain and trauma on removal
 

The dressing is designed to facilitate fluid transfer to secondary dressing and minimize both adherence and pain at dressing change
  • ADAPTIC TOUCH™ Dressing is atraumatic to the wound and surrounding skin2,3
  • Protects the wound and works as a primary dressing
  • Helps prevent adherence of the secondary dressing to the wound
  • Minimizes patient pain and trauma at dressing change
  • Allows free passage of exudate, reduces the risk of exudate pooling and maceration
  • May be left in place for several days depending upon amount of exudate (See IFU)
  • Stays in place during dressing application1,2
 
Comfort
  • In clinical practice, ADAPTIC TOUCH™ Dressing was found by clinicians to provide atraumatic-dressing removal, to be easy to use, and to be rated as good as or better than similar products2
  • A case series showed that patients with a range of wound types experienced atraumatic-dressing changes and had reduced overall pain scores with use of ADAPTIC TOUCH™ Dressing1
 
Performance
  • The size of the pores minimizes the risk of granulation tissue in-growth while also maintaining an open area3,4
  • The pore size allows visibility of the wound beneath without the need to remove dressing and disturb the wound1-4
  • ADAPTIC TOUCH™ Dressing stays in place during dressing application, allowing time to apply the secondary dressing1-4
  • In an in vitro model, the use of ADAPTIC TOUCH™ Dressing in conjunction with a secondary dressing reduced secondary dressing adherence (84% reduction with a foam dressing and 92% reduction with an alginate dressing)5
 
Affordability
  • A consensus document described how well ADAPTIC TOUCH™ Dressing functions in clinical settings over time, particularly in regards to non-adherence to the wound and secondary dressing, atraumatic removal, ease of use and cost-effectiveness5
