Spycra Protect is a soft, one-sided silicone adhesive dressing. Spycra Protect is a
bi-elastic dressing; elastic in both directions – in the length and in the width -, can be repositioned and has rounded edges to stay better in place. The bi-elasticity diminishes the effects of friction preventing the appearance of skin lesions in case of fragile skin (prevention of skin tears, scratch wounds,…)or in case of skin@risk (prevention of blistering when walking, running, ….)
The wide scaled pore structure of the dressing allows the dressing to breath and supports an optimal wound healing process based on the principle of moist wound healing. Top layer of lycra fibers, giving the dressing a silken-like look.
Does not absorb.
Used as protective layer to support fragile skin (skin at risk). The soft silicone layer and the bi-elastic top layer secure a perfect support of fragile skin. The bi-elasticity minimizes the shearing and traction forces on the skin, limiting the risk of secondary skin lesions. The wide scaled pore structure of the dressing allows the dressing to breath; transpiration can evaporate limiting the risk of maceration. The dressing can easily be re-positioned without loss of adherence. The dressing can stay in place for several days and can, if needed, be removed as pain free as possible.
The soft silicone layer seals off the wound edges avoiding maceration and keeping the surrounding skin dry and healthy. The wide scaled pore structure of the dressing allows excess of wound fluid to pass vertically towards an outer absorbent dressing. The outer dressing needs to be changed if needed and limits the risk of maceration; change frequency depends on the condition of the wound and the amount of wound exsudate. The integrity of the dressing and the features of the soft silicone layer allow the dressing to stay in place for several days. The soft and perfect adherence on the skin secures no loss of epidermis during dressing changes. This makes the dressing changes as pain free as possible.
