AQUACEL® dressing for diabetic foot ulcers


AQUACEL® dressing offers the unique gelling action of Hydrofiber® Technology that absorbs and locks in exudate and bacteria. 1

*Artist's interpretation

Hydrofiber® Technology drives the outstanding capabilities of AQUACEL ® Dressing.

Because AQUACEL ® Dressing incorporates Hydrofiber® Technology, it:

  • Provides excellent absorption and retention capabilities for moderate to highly exuding wounds2
  • Conforms to the wound surface to form an intimate contacta,3
  • Helps reduce wound pain while the dressing is in situ and upon removal.4-7
  • Supports wound healing by providing a moist wound healing environment
  • May help minimise cross-infection during dressing removal1

Piaggesi, et al. 2001

In a randomised trial of 20 patients with diabetic foot ulcers comparing AQUACEL ® Dressing with saline-moistened gauze for the management of deep diabetic foot ulcers:8

  • Wounds managed with the AQUACEL ® Dressing demonstrated a significantly shorter healing time compared to saline-moistened gauze (P<0.01)
  • Rate of granulation and reduction in lesional volume were significantly better in deep diabetic foot ulcers managed with AQUACEL ® Dressing than in those managed with saline-moistened gauze (P<0.01)
