How to use ActiFormCool®

An ionic sheet hydrogel which donates or absorb fluid to maintain an optimal level of moisture in the wound bed

1. Prepare and position

Clean wound in accordance with local guidelines and ensure wound edges are dry. Peel off one side of the white plastic liner and position the dressing. Smooth in place and remove remaining liner. Cut to size if required. Large areas can be treated with several dressings used side by side.

2. Secure and layer

Secure with a suitable bandage, tape or compression system. Where extra absorbency is required the dressing may be layered by removing the top liner of the first dressing and then applying a second dressing.

3. Removal

The dressing can be removed in one piece if the gel has not yet formed. If the gel has formed, wash it off gently with water or saline.

Changing instructions

  • ActiFormCool® should be changed as often as the wound/condition dictates.
  • As with all absorptive dressings, frequent monitoring is required to ensure the dressing does not dry out.
  • The dressing should be changed when it becomes cloudy or opaque from fluid absorption.
