ADAPTIC TOUCH™ Dressing Is All You Could Wish for in a Silicone Contact Layer


ADAPTIC TOUCH™ Non-Adhering Silicone Dressing is a primary wound contact layer for use in the management of dry to heavily exuding, partial and full-thickness chronic wounds. In a series of international case studies, ADAPTIC TOUCH™ Dressing was used as an alternative to traditional wound contact layers under V.A.C.® Therapy to protect fragile wound structures and benefit patients with a range of wound types. 

 

Over the course of those treatments, clinicians reported that ADAPTIC TOUCH™ Dressing was easy to use and remove, did not adhere, and did not cause patients pain during use or upon removal. Suitable for use, under medical supervision, with negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) for the protection of fragile wound structures*

How it Works

  • OVERVIEW
  • SPECIFICATIONS

ADAPTIC TOUCH™ Dressing primary wound contact layer helps protect the wound while minimizing patient pain and trauma on removal

The dressing is designed to facilitate fluid transfer to secondary dressing and minimize both adherence and pain at dressing change

 

  • ADAPTIC TOUCH™ Dressing is atraumatic to the wound and surrounding skin2,3
  • Protects the wound and works as a primary dressing
  • Helps prevent adherence of the secondary dressing to the wound
  • Minimizes patient pain and trauma at dressing change
  • Allows free passage of exudate, reduces the risk of exudate pooling and maceration
  • May be left in place for several days depending upon amount of exudate  (See IFU)
  • Stays in place during dressing application1,2

ADAPTIC TOUCH™ Dressing is a flexible, open-mesh primary wound contact layer comprised of cellulose acetate coated with a soft tack silicone. The soft tack silicone assists dressing application, prevents adherence of the secondary dressing to the wound and is atraumatic to the wound and surrounding skin. The open mesh structure allows free passage of exudate into an absorbent secondary dressing. ADAPTIC TOUCH™ Dressing helps protect the wound while minimising patient pain and trauma on removal and at dressing change.

Indications & Applications

  • INDICATIONS
  • APPLICATIONS

Specific indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions and safety information exist for KCI products and therapies. Healthcare providers should review the product User Manual, Safety Information and/or Instructions for Use prior to application.

 

ADAPTIC TOUCH™ Dressing is designed as a primary wound contact layer for use in the management of dry to heavily exuding, partial and full-thickness chronic wounds including venous ulcers, decubitus (pressure) injuries and diabetic ulcers, and for traumatic and surgical wounds, donor sites and 1st and 2nd degree burns. It is also suitable for use, under medical supervision, with negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) for the protection of fragile wound structures.

 

Contraindications

ADAPTIC TOUCH™ Dressing is not indicated for:

  • Patients with a known sensitivity to silicone or cellulose acetate fabric.
  • Surgical implantation.

Precautions

  • To prevent potential adherence of silicone to gloves, gloves may be moistened with a sterile solution to facilitate handling.
  • The wound should be inspected for signs of infection according to clinical practice 

 

Applications

Dressing selection 
  • Select a size of ADAPTIC TOUCH™ Dressing that is larger than the wound to ensure dressing can be applied to intact skin surrounding the wound margins.
    ADAPTIC TOUCH™ Dressing can be cut to size, if necessary. Dressing will not unravel or shed fibres.
  • If more than one piece of ADAPTIC TOUCH™ Dressing is required, ensure dressings overlap, to avoid secondary dressing adherence to the wound. Overlap should be minimised to prevent occlusion of holes.
  
Dressing Application 
  • Prepare the wound according to wound management protocol.
  • Ensure skin surrounding the wound is dry.
  • Remove protective films from dressing.
  • Place ADAPTIC TOUCH™ Dressing directly over the wound and smooth in place around the wound.
  • Cover with an appropriate absorbent secondary dressing, e.g. TIELLE™ Hydropolymer Adhesive Dressing.
  
Dressing Change 
  • Dressing change frequency is dictated by good wound care practice and will depend on the condition of the wound.
  • ADAPTIC TOUCH™ Dressing may be left in place for several days.
