Foam dressings are suitable for a variety of wound types, including pressure ulcers, leg ulcers, and surgical wounds. They can be used to cover and protect the wound, absorb exudate (drainage) from the wound, and promote a moist wound healing environment.

One of the main benefits of foam dressings is their ability to absorb large amounts of exudate without becoming heavy or bulky. This helps to keep the wound area clean and reduces the risk of infection. Foam dressings are also highly absorbent, so they can help to prevent exudate from soaking through to clothing or bedding.

Foam dressings are easy to apply and remove, and are available in a range of sizes and shapes to fit different wound types and locations. Choose foam dressings for a soft, comfortable, and effective wound care solution.
