AMS OUR TECHNOLOGY

Our world class manufacturing facility in Cheshire focuses on the design, development and manufacturing of innovative and technologically advanced wound care dressings. Our development of products within the wound care market treat chronic and acute wounds through moist wound healing principles. We develop treatments for complex wounds aiming to effectively speed up the healing process.

Our products are composed from the following core technologies:

We are the global leader in the supply and manufacturing of alginate dressings.

Alginate dressings, produced from seaweed, absorb exudate and donate calcium to the wound area which also helps to stop bleeding. Alginates absorb exudate away from the wound whilst also maintaining an ideal moist wound-healing environment. AMS alginate is available in high-gelling alginates produce a thick fibrous amorphous gel that locks away exudate whilst also maintaining a moist wound environment. Highly integral alginates absorb wound exudate into the dressing, which causes the dressing to swell, this ensures a high wet strength which ensures intact removal from the wound bed.

Our foam dressings are made from polyurethane foam, this is an essential part of the micro-porous hydrophilic structure.

The foam dressings have the ability to absorb high amounts of exudate whilst also ensuring the dressing can remain in place for prolonged wear times. The hydrophilic foam matrix has a flexible breathable backing whichensures moisture can be transferred through the dressing. This allows a high fluid handling capability whilst also providing a waterproof microbial barrier. The composition of our foam dressing ensures the dressings remains comfortable, protective and easy to apply.

Hydrocolloid contains a blend of synthetic polymers and hydrophillic powders.

They are suitable for use on low to moderately exuding wounds. The dressing is designed to protect against skin breakdown or to dress superficial loss of the epidermis. Lamination with a moisture, vapour-permeable polyurethane film significantly improves performance by increasing total fluid handling capacity and thereby increasing wear time.

Amorphous Hydrogels are three dimensional, water swollen, cross-linked structures usually produced from hydrophilic biopolymers.

AMS has developed and manufactures hydrogel that encourages cell autolysis of devitalised tissue which facilitates wound healing. The key performance parameter for a hydrogel dressing is the ability to donate fluid to devitalised, necrotic tissue. AMS Hydrogel is an excellent fluid donator compared with the leading competitors.
