The advantages in using a glycerine sheet dressings in these situations are:
Novogel will not dehydrate the intact skin and the skin under the dressing will remain in good condition
because of the 65% glycerine in the dressing.
Because of its fourway stretch lycra backing Novogel will dress those difficult areas with ease i.e.
Heels, ankle, and sacrum.
Novogel can be reapplied to the ulcer if it is not saturated.
Novogel has a high humidity and oxygen transfer rate and can absorb 2.5 – 3 times its own weight
in exudate without macerating the skin.
Novogel has pressure reducing properties, and shearing forces are to a large extent eliminated, thus
reducing the risk of pressure sores.
