JumpStart dressings are provided on an ultra-thin, lightweight polyester substrate and contain laser-cut fenestration to allow easy passage of wound exudate into the absorbent layer or a secondary dressing. The flexible design easily contours to the body. JumpStart dressings may be applied directly over sutures, staples, Steri-Strips™*, and liquid skin adhesives. The dot matrix pattern of silver and zinc microcell batteries embedded on the dressing generate microcurrents in the presence of a conductive medium, such as sterile saline, water, hydrogel, or wound exudate.
