This Dressing Zaps Microbes and Jump-Starts Healing

Wound healing has gone high-tech with JumpStart, an antimicrobial, growth stimulating dressing from Arthrex. It's indicated for everything from surgical incisions to pressure ulcers and can be applied directly over sutures, staples, Steri-Strips and liquid skin adhesives. JumpStart’s tiny microcell silver and zinc batteries generate an electric potential that kills microbes and stimulates epithelial regrowth. Ultra-thin and lightweight, JumpStart is still highly absorbent, water-resistant and designed for extended wear. The antimicrobial action lasts 7 days. An ergonomic shape conforms easily to body contours. Choose from multiple sizes, which can be cut to fit.
