Item Number: ALGIVONP
Algivon Plus has reinforced alginate fibres enabling a sustained, slow release of honey whilst maintaining the integrity of the dressing. Algivon Plus is an ideal choice for wetter wounds as the alginate has a small capacity to absorb, meaning the honey isn't washed away with exudate.
Algivon Plus is placed either side down onto the wound surface; dressings can be placed side by side to cover large wound areas or cut to size ensuring that sharp scissors are used.
Algivon may be applied to any wound but especially:
Pressure ulcers, leg ulcers, diabetic ulcers, surgical wounds, burns, graft sites and infected wounds.
Manuka honey brings the following properties:
Anti-bacterial – kills harmful bacteria
Eliminates odours without masking them
Osmotic effect, drawing harmful tissue away from the wound bed
Maintains the ideal moist wound healing environment
Ability to absorb exudate
Reinforced to maintain dressing integrity
