Solutions for the Clinical Setting

Comfort Release® atraumatic products are ideal for any patient with fragile skin.

This includes older patients, pediatric and neonatal settings, and anyone whose skin has been compromised by medication, injury or illness.

Skin tear is among the most common adverse events in nursing home residents transitioning from the hospital – with 88% of occurrences determined to be preventable.1

Skin that has grown thinner and more fragile with age leaves older patients a critically at-risk population in which clinical best practices have traditionally advised against adhesive use.

Comfort Release® changes the adhesive landscape with its atraumatic release technology, presenting a new option for long-term care, home health, and other geriatric treatment settings.

Medical adhesive- related skin injury (MARSI) is the #1 cause of iatrogenic neonatal skin injury.2

Pediatric patients, especially those under the age of three, are highly susceptible to skin tears due to their underdeveloped subcutaneous tissue.3

Comfort Release® spares this extremely vulnerable population the pain and trauma of adhesive removal – making it a practical choice for pediatric hospitals and NICUs.

Comfort Release® dressings and bandages were specially developed to protect vulnerable periwound skin in advanced wound care settings. But our products are also ideal in any clinical setting for patients taking blood thinners, steroids, chemotherapy or other medications that affect the skin.

Easy to Use On Patients

Our products were created with both the patient and the healthcare provider in mind, so you can seamlessly implement Comfort Release® into clinical workflows while offering patients a better care experience.

Manageable Timescale
Release is triggered within 3-10 seconds of applying isopropyl alcohol.4 Many of our products come with ready-to-go alcohol prep pads.

Remove & Reposition
Once the alcohol evaporates, adhesive strength returns. Comfort Release® also leaves no residual glue, leaving a clean surface to reposition as needed.

Stays in Place
Water resistant to remain adherent during bathing and other standard patient care activities
