*Seek advice from your physician regarding to your condition

Occasionally, we like to offer some info behind a few of our wound dressings for those who might be just starting to use them or contemplating use of them—such as when they’re best used and important things you should know when using. As always, if you have any questions about this product or use of it, don’t hesitate to contact me directly, Leslie Rader, EB Coordinator, at 1-888-EBAID4U or by email at leslie.rader@hollisterwoundcare.com. I’m happy to help however I can.

This week, we’re spotlighting the most recent additions to our product line launched last spring at the Symposium on Advanced Wound Care in Orlando: our Restore and Restore Lite Foam Dressings.

Some helpful information for you to know:

  • Dressings are designed using TRIACT ADVANCED Technology.
    Like many of Hollister’s other products, the Restore and Restore Lite foam dressing are developed with TRIACT ADVANCED Technology, made of a lipido-colloid matrix that forms a gel when exudate is present, a gel that can help prevent sticking of the dressing to the wound bed. For patients, this means that dressing removal is virtually pain-free.
  • The Restore and Restore Lite Foam Dressings featuring TRIACT Advanced Technology offer a moist wound interface.
    With a semi-permeable backing, these dressings offer a high moisture transmission rate that helps reduce maceration and preserve wound margins. Use of standard versus lite will most likely depend upon the exudate level of the wound being dressed.

  • Dressings feature a foam padding that promotes vertical wicking.
    Whether it’s the standard dressing, which features a super-absorbent foam pad, or the lite version with its thinner foam pad, the Restore foam dressing line enables users to contain the exudate through vertical wicking and protect the delicate, periwound skin from maceration.
  • Restore and Restore Lite Foam Dressings featuring TRIACT Advanced Technology offer adaptability and ease of use.
    With the properties of TRIACT ADVANCED Technology, both wound dressings offer increased conformability and a gentle micro-adherence that allows users to apply the dressing across a variety of locations on the body as needed. This ease of application and removal also lends itself to one-handed application.
  • These products have specific indications for use.

Restore Foam Dressing is available with and without a border and is indicated in the treatment of moderate to heavily exuding wounds. Restore Lite Foam Dressing is available without a border and is indicated in the treatment of light to moderately exuding wounds. Restore Foam Dressing Without Border and Restore Lite Foam Dressing are recommended in the treatment of wounds in which the surrounding skin is fragile, friable or damaged. Restore and Restore Lite Foam Dressings are suitable for use under compression bandages/wraps due to the ability of the dressing to retain exudates.
