STERIL designed the first Disposable Dressing Set in 1990. The product is now widely recognized for the convenience it provides to nurses or doctors who are involved in the dressing and caring of patients’ wounds. The original design has now become a standard of numerous manufacturers assembling sets for similar purpose.
The set contains a procedure tray with compartments for holding the cleansing solutions used, hand towel, protective underlay, cotton balls, gauze, disposable forceps and a limpet bag.
The distinguishing feature of STERIL’s set is the disposable GSF forceps. Designed and produced from proprietary plastic resin, the hardest forceps perform close to what is expected of a reusable metal instrument. The tips are shaped precisely for holding suture ends during stitching or suture removal. They are capable of grasping firmly any PVC catheter during insertion or retrieval and wet or dry cotton balls or gauze when these are used for wound cleaning and dressing.
