How to remove Lumina Dressings

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

The dressing containing the switchable adhesive contains built-in receptors for the wavelength that the switch lamp emits. To initiate the switch, the lamp is held at a distance of about 2-3cm from the dressing, each areas requires about 2 seconds of illumination for the adhesive to switch. The light is then moved to the next area of the dressing and the process is repeated for the entire dressing. We recommend performing the illumination in a systematic pattern, so you know what area has been switched.

Once the entire dressing has been switched, initiate the release at one of the corners and peel the dressing of. For added comfort, remove the dressing in the direction of any hairs that might be located under the dressing.

An alternative to using the torch is to make use of sun light. Even if the patient is sent home, the patient can still make use of the switch.
