The health benefits of honey have been known about for thousands of years. Activon’s Manuka Honey Dressing is a non-adherent triple layer of gauze coated in medical grade honey. With New Zealand Manuka honey is equivalent to unique medical factor 12, it has a broad-spectrum antibacterial effect which is even effective against the drug resistant MRSA, to help you heal, naturally.
Activon Tulle is a BP specification knitted viscose primary dressing impregnated with an optimum volume of Activon medical grade Manuka honey for effective wound treatment. Activon is pure honey with no additives which could cause an adverse reaction. It is produced to the highest possible hygiene standards to ensure its suitability for the treatment of wounds. Activon Tulle is designed to protect a wound, create a moist healing environment and form a barrier which effectively reduce or eliminate wound odour. Through osmotic action attributable to the high sugar levels in the antibacterial Manuka honey, exudate will be drawn from the wound into the dressing, which promotes autolytic debridement. Activon Tulle will maintain a moist environment and will help improve the condition of the wound bed.
Activon Tulle is placed (either side down) onto the wound surface; dressings can be placed side by side to cover large wound areas or cut to size. Activon Tulle can be unfolded to cover larger areas, this reduces the concentration of honey at the wound site. Depending on the tissue type within the wound bed and level of exudate, your secondary dressing of choice could be a film dressing and/or bandage. In wounds with a high level of exudate an additional highly absorbent dressing can be introduced to help manage exudate.
Some natural health products make claims without the evidence to back them up. Case studies involving Activon from Advancis Medical demonstrate its effectiveness in promoting healing, improving the appearance of wounds, and most importantly, improving the patient’s quality of life.
