Award Honors Medical Dressing

June 16, 2005

3M Form Adhesive Dressing, Heel Design, has received a Silver 2005 Medical Design Excellence Award for design innovation. Available now as 3M Foam Adhesive Dressing, the dressing will soon be part of 3M's established and trusted Tegaderm brand line. The dressing is unique in providing an easy-to-use solution for the significant problem of pressure ulcers on the heel and other highly contoured body sites that are difficult to dress. The Medical Design Excellence Awards competition is the only awards program that exclusively recognizes contributions and advances in the design of medical products.

The dressing is constructed from a conformable polyurethane foam pad, an absorbent nonwoven layer and a top layer of transparent adhesive film, which is vapor permeable. It maintains a moist wound environment,, which has been shown to enhance wound healing. It is designed to allow easy, one-handed application to difficult body contours, including heels and elbows.
