Brand/Manufacturer: MEDLINE INDUSTRIES
Authorized Retailer Badge

Medline Opticell Gelling Fiber Wound Dressing with Chytoform, Chitosan-based gelling fiber technology allows the absorbent fibers of the dressing to transform into a clear and conformable gel. The unique gelling action helps manage drainage and remove dead, damaged and infected tissue from the wound, trapping it for later removal at the dressing change. This technology wicks fluid only vertically, not laterally, helping to reduce the risk of periwound maceration because wound fluid will not migrate across the dressing to reach the vulnerable skin. Opticells conformable and thin profile provides optimal contact with the wound.
