The Smith & Nephew ALLEVYN™ Gentle Border Heel Dressing features an advanced triple-layered construction with an absorbent hydrocellular pad sandwiched between a perforated silicone gel adhesive wound contact layer and a highly permeable waterproof outer film.
The Heel Dressing is easy to fit and can be left in place without the need for secondary retention, conforming well to the complex contours of the heel. It can be lifted and repositioned without losing its adherent properties.
These wound dressings are sterile
