Peter

Life:
Peter leads a very active life and doesn't want to be held back by unnecessary dressing changes when he doesn't have to.

Needs:
Peter wants a dressing that will give him the reassurance of when it really needs to be changed and one that can manage his wound in the meantime.

Arthur

Life:
As a retired gentleman, Arthur likes nothing more than socialising at his golf club but has recently felt uncomfortable in public because of highly visible dressing strikethrough from exudate.

Needs:
Arthur wants a dressing that keeps exudate discreet so that he can stop worrying about looking unclean and rejoin his friends.
