Product Description

Capillary action dressings are particularly useful in cases of moderate or heavily exudating wounds, where the slough can be thick and fatty. In such cases you need to remove excess wound fluid or exudate from the wound whilst still maintaining adequate moisture for the wound healing process. Often, wounds can be more complicated to treat, because they can be irregularly shaped, situated at difficult to treat places on the body, or they can be deep or undermined. VACUTEX is a perfect combination between both a capillary action dressing and a draining action.

Vautex’s™ rapid capillary action promotes debridement and optimal moist wound healing. Cost-effective, versatile and easy to remove, this dynamic healthcare product is effective in the management of acute and chronic wound indications. Vacuctex™ incorporates a patented three-layer construction of poly-cotton elements that promotes accelerated capillary action on wound interfaces. Vacutex™ effectively lifts, transports and retains exudate and interstitial fluids.
