DrySee®, a medical technology company dedicated to improving wound care, introduces its patented waterproof bandage with liquid intrusion alert. The average bandage provides some protection, but it is still easy for dirt and water to reach a wound. Even if a waterproof bandage is used on a wound it’s hard to tell if it is actually sealed. DrySee is an alternative to traditional cloth or plastic bandages when more reliable wound protection and water blockage is needed.DrySee’s waterproof bandages provide a secure, waterproof covering for low exudate wounds. If water or other liquids make their way into the bandage, the liquid indicating gauze along the perimeter of the bandage will turn a dark, blue color. Fluid from the wound site will cause the internal pad to also change color, alerting the user that a bandage change is necessary. DrySee’s color changing, liquid intrusion alert takes the guesswork out of replacing bandages because it is easy to see if the bandage is wet or dry. DrySee bandages can last for up to 3 days, so people may even be able to reduce the number of bandage changes that they need to complete during healing.
“Infections are a historical and ongoing plague on the health care system,” said Brad Greer, CEO of DrySee. “DrySee is a game-changer for any type of wound care. There is no more ambiguity on the part of the person caring for the wound. It is visibly obvious when a bandage needs to be changed. This visual cue should help people be more proactive with their wound care and help reduce the number of infections.”
DrySee bandages are available in packages of 25 for online purchase. DrySee liquid indicating bandages are waterproof, sterile, disposable, breathable, non-latex, and one bandage can be used for up to three days. For more information and ordering, visit www.drysee.com.
DrySee’s mission is to provide bandage solutions that allow patients to live their lives confidently after surgery. The DrySee team saw a need in the medical industry for a more secure and effective dressing to ensure better post-op healing and created a revolutionary waterproof dressing that changes color to indicate if the bandage has been compromised.
The cutting-edge, patented DrySee technology helps to lower both staff and material costs while improving patient compliance and experience.
