Mepilex is a soft and highly conformable foam dressing that absorbs exudate and maintains a moist wound environment. The Safetac technology prevents Mepilex from sticking to the wound bed yet adheres gently to the surrounding skin allowing easy application of secondary fixation. In addition, the Safetac layer ensures that the dressing can be changed without damaging the wound or surrounding skin or subjecting the patient to additional pain. Mepilex absorbs exudate effectively and ensures a low risk of maceration.
Benefits of Mepilex:
Areas of use
Moderately exuding wounds
Leg and foot ulcers
Graft and donor sites
Traumatic wounds (e.g., skin tears and secondary healing wounds).
