Alginate dressing impregnated with 100% Manuka honey
- Algivon® is a soft alginate dressing impregnated with 100% medical grade Manuka honey. The alginate fibres enable a sustained, slower release of honey.
- Algivon® 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 therefore staying at the wound site for longer.
- The dressing is very soft and conformable, ideal for cavities and debriding and de-sloughing large areas of necrotic and sloughy tissue.
- Osmotic effect
- Enhanced healing
- Odour reduction
Algivon may be applied to any wound but especially sloughly, necrotic and malodorous wounds, including:-
- Leg ulcers
- Pressure ulcers
- Diabetic ulcers
- Fungating lesions
- Complicated surgical wounds
- Infected wounds
- Cavity wounds
