Soft components for the healing phase

Phase-appropriate compression with a silk-like effect: Actico silk’s practical two-piece, ready-for-use dressing system promotes healing. It is the next step after treatment with the short stretch bandage system Rosidal sys, which is used for initial treatment in the oedema phase. As a ready-for-use compression dressing for use after oedema has been reduced, Actico silk is the rational option for continuing treatment until the ulcers have healed. Ready-for-use dressings are recommended when there is no pitting or as soon as there is no obvious decrease in volume in the lower leg between compression dressing changes.

Silk-like properties

The integrated silky nylon microfibres are what make this ready-for-use dressing a comfortable-to-wear stocking with a silk-like effect. So the stockings slide easily and comfortably over one another, when being put on and taken off. They have high skin tolerance and adapt to provide an anatomical fit which results in a high degree of treatment accuracy.
This is how it works: A white understocking is pulled on directly over the wound dressing. The 10 mmHg compression it supplies is enough for night-time use. During the day, a second, sand-coloured stocking at 30 mmHg is pulled over the white understocking. Actico silk provides the high working pressure required in the acute phase, especially when walking.

Reliable companion – day or night

Actico silk provides continuous compression therapy day or night with a comfortably low resting pressure – the white understocking is worn on the leg around the clock. This ensures a consistently correct fit for the dressing which results in high treatment safety. Actico silk compression products are also washable, which makes them economical and cost-effective to use.
