Medline Optifoam Gentle Silicone Border Hydrophilic Foam Wound Dressing is highly absorbent and ideal for wounds with drainage. It helps ease the pain and trauma of dressing changes. Optifoam Gentle features a specially-formulated silicone adhesive that helps keep the dressing in place, while allowing it to reposition and remove. It also minimizes harm to the peri wound skin. Absorbent foam of Optifoam Gentle retains fluid, protects against infection and helps prevent shear and friction.

Why choose Optifoam Gentle Border Adhesive Dressings?

  • Absorbs drainage
  • Creates ideal healing environment
  • Utilizes silicone adhesive for gentle adhesion

Medline Optifoam Gentle Foam Wound Dressing Features

  1. Highly breathable film works as a secure waterproof barrier to bacteria
  2. Super absorbent layer absorbs and retains exudate in the dressing, minimizing the risk of maceration
  3. Transfer layer between the super absorbent layer and wicking foam layer ensures that exudate is transferred to the super absorbent layer as efficiently as possible
  4. Foam layer initiates vertical absorption of exudate away from the wound bed into the transfer and super absorbent layers, thereby minimizing the pooling of exudate at the wound face of absorbent dressing
  5. Silicone adhesive minimizes trauma to the wound and helps reduce pain upon wear or removal
