Mepilex Border Dressings 7.5cm x 7.5cm 5
With the Safetac technology adhesive, Mepilex can be removed with less risk of damaging the wound or the surrounding skin. A new enhanced backing film together with the highly conformable absorbent foam makes Mepilex handle fluid effectively. It is designed for a wide range of low to medium exuding wounds. Whether it is chronic wounds or acute wounds, like post-op wounds or diabetic wounds Mepilex decreases pain at dressing change. Less pain means lower stress levels for patients and that, in turn, helps healing. Mepilex can be cut to fit an individual wound or body location and Mepilex is highly conformable. This makes it ideal for difficult-to-dress areas. Use together with our Tubifast Fixation. For lower exuding wounds, see Mepilex Lite.

Mepilex Border is an absorbent, atraumatic self-adhesive island dressing with a perforated soft silicone wound contact layer. The absorbent core of the dressing consists of three components, a thin sheet of polyurethane foam, a piece of nonwoven fabric and a layer of superabsorbent polyacrylate fibres. The core is located centrally upon a larger piece of polyurethane film and is held in place by the perforated silicone adhesive layer that extends to the outer margins of the dressing. This gentle adhesion also tends to prevent maceration by inhibiting the lateral movement of exudate from the wound on to the surrounding skin. The silicone layer does not adhere to the surface of a wound and therefore the dressing may be removed without causing pain or trauma.
