Optifoam Gentle Foam Dressings with Silicone Adhesive Border, 10.2" x 9.3", Box of 5
Optifoam Gentle helps ease the pain and trauma of dressing changes.
Featuring a specially-formulated silicone adhesive that helps keep it
in place, Optifoam’s absorbent core absorbs and retains fluid, and helps prevent shear and friction.
Studies in the evaluation of the use of a foam dressing with silicone border on patients at risk for HAPU resulted in a significant reduction in pressure ulcers over a 3-month period with lower monthly incidence and enhanced prevention. 1
