Granuflex has been used in wound management since the 1960s. The new improved formulation enables gel to be confined within the structure of the dressing, thus aiding the control of wound exudate. Granuflex is suitable for many types of chronic, acute and traumatic wounds. Granuflex fulfils many of the characteristics of the ideal dressing: it reduces pain, is less time-consuming, promotes rapid healing, is cost-effective, and is easy to use in practice. Granuflex plays an important role in infection control by protecting the wound from contamination and preventing the spread of infection.
