Silicone adhesive multilayer foam dressings have been used for several years to treat pressure ulcers, which are a common complication of bed confinement or long-term immobilisation. Recently, a clinical trial funded by the Federal Health Care Knowledge Centre (KCE) Trials programme and performed by the Ghent University SKINT research group found them to be effective in preventing pressure ulcers. A new study by the same researchers now shows that this preventive use is not only effective, but also cost-effective. Read the full report here.
