Typically, adhesive tape is the means most commonly used to secure wound dressings to a patient. The primary problem associated with this is the fact that significant numbers of patients, particularly the elderly and diabetics have sensitive skin that is damaged by the repeated application and removal of tape during the healing process. This results in a longer, more expensive recovery for these patients, because the tape-related wounds also require treatment. Accordingly, wound care specialists advocate the use of tapless dressing sytem in the treatment of such patients.
Although the medical / surgical binders and wraps currently available to the healthcare industry unquestionably represent a significant advance in wound care management, as a group they also exhibit a variety of shortcomings. These products are not well tolerated by most patients for continuous dressing support.
