It is mild peel, does not slip easily, has customizable size, and high exudate absorption rate.

This makes it really great for some of these uses:

1. Bedsores Or Decubitus Ulcer

Bedsores — also called pressure ulcers and decubitus ulcers — are injuries to skin and underlying tissue resulting from prolonged pressure on the skin. Bedsores most often develop on skin that covers bony areas of the body, such as the heels, ankles, hips and tailbone. People most at risk of bedsores have medical conditions that limit their ability to change positions or cause them to spend most of their time in a bed or chair. [1]

In order for bedsores to heal, dressings are used to help the body heal itself. [2]

Si-Aid can be applied directly on the bedsores as a primary dressing to absorb the exudate impeding healing. Si-Aid has a high exudate absorption rate – up to 10 layers of gauze – and can even be stacked one on top of the other, in order to further increase the absorption rate.

2. Burn Wounds

Burn wounds are caused by fires or flames, hot liquids or steam, contact with a hot object or agent like grease or tar, chemicals, or electricity. When evaluating a burn injury, doctors look at two factors: how deep the burn is and the burn size which is measured by the percent total body surface area (% TBSA). The burn depth depends on how hot the agent was and how long the burned area was in contact with the agent and how thick the skin is in the area. [3]

There are many advanced wound care products available for burns. These products don’t require daily dressing changes and can be left in place until the wound heals. This can make pain control much easier and may decrease anxiety about wound care. [3]

Si-Aid is an example of a wound care product for burn wounds.

Here’s a testimony of one of our customers who used Si-Aid to treat a burn wound for her child.

“My boy was burned by hot water. He was fretful and refused clinic visits. I consulted a friend who happens to be a doctor, and he recommended Si-Aid. It works amazing! It prevents friction with clothing and prevents scratching. It also reduces the frequency of dressing change as I was told it can be left for 3 days or more. Changing the wound dressing is easy, as peeling the dressing is less painful and I only change it every 2 days. By day 8 or 9, I no longer need to use any dressing.”
