Every Milliken ASSIST Silver dressing utilizes Active Fluid Management® Technology created by Milliken Healthcare Products, LLC. This three-part design combines two layers of high-performance fabric using a micro-knit process, creating a moisture transfer mechanism that pulls away and traps excess exudate.
ASSIST Silver combines the moisture management benefits of AFM’s three-part design with a proprietary ceramic silver ion technology. This controlled release of ionic silver inhibits a broad spectrum of infectioncausing microbes including antibiotic-resistant strains such as MRSA. The release of silver into the dressing is activated by the body’s own sodium with antimicrobial activity for up to seven days.
The patented low adherent layer in ASSIST Silver eliminates the need for a separate non-adherent layer, which saves O.R. and nursing time during application and maintenance. Furthermore, the dressings’ low profile and flexibility allow for improved range of motion and patient comfort.
