An ionic sheet hydrogel which can reduce wound pain
ActiFormCool reduces wound pain and provides an immediate cooling effect, especially if the skin or wound is hot and inflamed.
ActiFormCool dynamically responds to the moisture level in the wound, either donating or absorbing exudate, to create and maintain the optimal moist wound environment.
Practitioners should rationalise why they are using dressing combinations e.g. adhesive film dressing cover to provide waterproofing, compression bandaging to address venous problems. There are no known interactions between ActiFormCool® and other dressings.
