Opticell wound dressing uses a unique gelling ChytoformTMtechnology that 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.The ChytoformTMtechnology wicks fluid only vertically, not laterally, helping to reduce the risk of periwound maceration.Opticell's conformable and thin profile provides optimal contact with the wound.Although Opticell is designed specifically for moderate to heavily draining wounds, it can also be pre-moistened for effective use on dry or lightly draining wounds.Indications: Partial- and full-thickness wounds; 1st- and 2nd- degree burns; Diabetic foot ulcers; Venous stasis ulcers; Arterial ulcers and leg ulcers of mixed etiology; Pressure ulcers; Surgical wounds; Donor sites
