The Kendall™ AMD antimicrobial bordered foam dressings were designed to help prevent complications like pressure, friction and shear.
Both friction and shear have been identified as significant contributors to pressure ulcer development. These forces can cause skin around the wound to separate from underlying tissue thus complicating and delaying wound healing. Kendall™ AMD antimicrobial bordered foam dressings are designed to have a smooth, low friction, topsheet to allow movement without transferring undue forces to the periwound tissue. These characteristics may help to minimize the impact of friction and shearing injuries.
