During a visit to an infection prevention seminar, MI were given the challenge to create product that would act as a bandage or plaster that could easily be removed from sensitive or damaged skin without touching the patient or the dressing. This process would alleviate the pain and suffering associated with traditional wound dressings.
The product under development is strong enough to act as an effective retention system for wound dressings but easily breaks down when coming in contact with water.
Many common injuries can be treated with our unique soluble wound dressing. The dressing is suitable for both clinical and home use and can be used from damaged and sensitive skin.
There are several methods to dissolve the dressings it can be submersed in water for a short period of time where it will detach itself from the skin without any need for abrasion. It can also be removed in the shower or with a fine spray of water.
