Debridement device with a head made from polyester, using patented Monofilament Fibre Technology secured to a polypropylene handle. NICE technologies guidance (MTG17) states that the case for using this dressing on acute and chronic wounds in the community is supported by the evidence.
Removal of superficial slough and debris, including biofilm, during wound bed preparation; can also be used at dressing change to aid assessment. Useful for cavity wounds and awkward areas, such as skin folds. The soft fibres, which lift, bind and remove debris, are designed to reach all uneven areas of the skin and wound bed. Suitable for chronic wounds such as leg ulcers, diabetic ulcers and pressure ulcers; acute wounds such as lacerations, cuts and abrasions; and superficial epidermal and partial-thickness burns.
Prior treatment with autolytic debridement is advised if very stubborn slough or hard necrosis is present.
