Allevyn Life Heel Foam Dressing has a multi-layered design that is helpful for people and their everyday life. The cushioning layer provides the maximum protection and the masking layer minimizes the visual impact of strikethrough. The change indicator available optimizes the dressing change frequency that in turn helps minimize the waste. The unique quadrilobed shape of Allevyn Life with a wide border is designed to fit the contours of human body securely and allow the patients to shower. Allevyn Life dressings also provide peace of mind, leakage prevention, and common wound odor absorption.

What to buy with Allevyn Foam Dressing


About Allevyn Life Foam Dressing

The next generation of silicone foam dressings was designed following a global patient ethnographic study.

What led to the innovation of Allevyn Life Dressing?

  • Leakage, visible strikethrough and odor can be embarrassing and stigmatizing
  • Poor cushioning from knocks and bumps can cause fear and pain
  • Dressings that do not stay in place and fall off are highly frustrating
  • Frequent dressing changes and slow wound healing cause anxiety
This inspired the development of Allevyn Life, which is a multi-layered dressing incorporating hydrocellular foam, a hyper-absorbent lock away core and a masking layer designed specifically for people and their everyday life.

What is Allevyn?

Complete wound care means far more than just physical healing, particularly to patients living with their wounds 24/7. Allevyn is the dressing that has stood by it and worked backward from the human body, transpiring just the right amount to keep each wound at the optimum moisture levels. 96% of patients assessed Allevyn Life as a comfortable dressing during wear.

How long can Allevyn stay on?

  • In-vitro studies and clinical experience demonstrate that Allevyn Life dressings can stay in place for up to seven days.
  • This capacity results from a combination of properties.
  • The perforated wound contact layer allows even viscous exudate to pass into the dressing.
