 Alprep® Pad

Support optimal wound bed preparation by cleansing and debriding with Alprep® Pad

Alprep® Pad is a two-in-one cleansing and debridement tool, rated by clinicians as effective and convenient to use.

It is suitable for a wide variety of wounds including non-infected wounds, infected wounds or wounds with suspected biofilm. Use Alprep Pad to cleanse and debride the wound, wound edge and periwound skin by gently wiping the surface of the wound.

The benefits of Alprep pad

Our research tells us that clinicians currently experience key challenges with existing wound cleansing and wound debridement products such as limited functionality, low absorption and lack of usage control.

This is why we created Alprep Pad a two-in-one cleansing and debridement tool that is designed for improved absorption and ease of use.

Two tools in one

The open structure of the dark grey foam is for loosening. The light grey softer foam is for absorbing and capturing.

Designed for improved absorption

Unique slits design increases the absorption and captures loosened slough, non-viable tissue and biofilms.

Easy and convenient to use

The special triangular shape makes for comfortable handling. The packaging can also be used to wet and hold the pad.

How to cleanse and debride a wound with Alprep Pad

You can use both sides of Alprep Pad - it is two tools in one.

The dark grey foam is for loosening and the light grey foam is for absorbing and capturing. Loosen first or absorb first, depending on the wound.

Alprep Pad has been specially designed to be easy to use and control, giving you the flexibility to reach areas in the wound where debridement is needed.

Wound preparation by cleansing and debridement using Alprep® Pad.

Wound preparation, which encompasses cleansing and debridement, involves preparing the skin and all areas of the wound for healing. Cleansing and debridement are clinically proven to speed up wound healing by removing slough, devitalised tissue and biofilm (Wilcox et al, 2013). Removing the barriers that may delay wound healing is a crucial step in wound care, allowing wound assessment, reducing risk of infection and promoting development of healthy tissue.
