Allevyn Heel allows the formation and maintenance of a moist wound healing environment at the wound surface, preventing eschar formation and promoting rapid and trouble free healing. Allevyn Heel dressing is designed to gently fit around the back of the foot allowing the wound to be dressed creating a moist wound healing environment. Allevyn Heel dressings are soft and cushioning, giving excellent patient comfort and protection. Allevyn Heel absorbs and retains exudate, bacteria and cellular debris, providing clean, mess free dressing changes. In-vitro studies and clinical experience, both demonstrate that as healing progresses, Allevyn dressings can stay in place for up to seven days.
