ConvaTec (Skillman, NJ) has announced a thinner version of its Versiva XC dressing which will better conform to the patient’s body. Versiva XC dressing incorporates the company’s Hydrofiber technology, which helps trap fluids, removing bacteria from the wound site and helping maintain an ideal moisture balance.
From the press release:
The new and improved Versiva® XC® dressing includes a thinner layer of adhesive, making it 40% more conformable at its border. Greater conformability is designed and intended to improve flexibility, which may enhance patient comfort. The dressing was developed based on feedback and collaboration with clinicians and nurses who use adhesive dressings to help promote wound healing.
Because Versiva® XC® is thinner, it also represents a more discreet dressing option that can improve patient confidence that the dressing will remain in place and is designed to support improved healing, healthy periwound skin and increased comfort.
