  • SPECIFICATIONS

How does it work?

The hydrogel creates a moist wound healing environment, which assists with natural autolytic debridement whilst the alginate component enhances its absorptive capabilities. The gel can be used to soften and hydrate eschar by facilitating rehydration of the wound.2
 
Easy to use

NU-GEL™ Hydrogel can be applied to the wound with a simple one-handed technique. The ampoule packaging allows easy application and limits product wastage. 

Long wear time
An RCT on PUs showed NU-GEL™ Hydrogel to have a mean wear time of 2.78 days, 38% longer than IntraSite® Gel, before secondary dressing change was necessary1

 

+(p=0.014). † In terms of ease of squeezing the gel from the pack, directing the gel into the wound, and consistency of the gel on application.

p=0.024, p=0.047, p=0.01 respectively1
