ALLEVYN Gentle Border Sacrum is a silicone gel adhesive hydrocellular foam dressing incorporating unique triple-action technology. Each dressing measures 8”x6-3/4”. It is comprised of a highly breathable polyurethane top film, a hydrocellular foam layer and a perforated wound contract layer coated with a silicone gel adhesive. It provides optimal fluid management, lowers risk of maceration, extensive wear time and retention, and resistant to leakage.
ALLEVYN Gentle Border Sacrum has a unique design with three slits in the film at the bottom of the dressing to aid placement of the dressing in the cleft and aid dressing conformability in this awkward area of the body.
It has a top film provides bacterial and waterproof barrier. It features a wider border helps secure the dressing to the sacral area and a tail at the end of the dressing to aid with conformability. There are 3 perforated slits to help with placement around the cleft. The silicone wound contact layer can be lifted and repositioned without losing its adherent properties.
It provides a bacterial barrier which may help reduce risk of infection. It is extensible and flexible and easily molds to body contours and hard to dress areas.
It adheres gently to surrounding skin and does minimal trauma to the sacral area
