ALLEVYN Life Packaging

At Smith & Nephew, we have a long-standing heritage of putting people first, with over 25 years of patient centred innovation and multiple product improvements.

The ALLEVYN range of wound care dressings was developed from our understanding of the human body and the experience of living with a wound.

With increasing pressure on time and resources, we know how important it is for healthcare professionals to reach for the right dressing with ease, which is why we have redesigned our ALLEVYN packaging with simple, informative features, such as:

  • ALLEVYN Range Colour ChartColour-coded product names
  • A strong silver band to identify Ag versions of each dressing
  • Product images and dimensions
  • QR code link to for additional product support
