Molnlycke's Mepilex Border foam dressing is designed for a wide range of moderate to high exuding wounds. Such wounds may include pressure ulcers, bed sores, leg and foot ulcers, diabetic wounds, surgical incisions, skin tears, abrasions, blisters, and secondary healing wounds. Mepilex dressing is ideal for individuals with sensitive skin, as well as elderly patients with thin and fragile skin.
Mepilex Border dressing effectively absorbs and retains exudate and maintains a moist wound environment. It has a Safetac layer that seals wound edges, preventing exudate from leaking onto the surrounding skin. This also helps minimize risk for maceration and ensures that the dressing can be changed without damaging the wound or causing more pain to the patient. Unlike other adhesive bandages, Mepilex Border won't pull on skin or tear skin during dressing changes.
Thanks to its absorptive and retentive properties Mepilex Border is suitable for use under compression bandaging. Mepilex Border can also be used on dry/necrotic wounds in combination with gels.
Mepilex Border is slightly padded to cushion the wound and minimize pain to the patient. This foam dressing does not stick onto the wound itself, but it adheres securely onto surrounding skin without causing irritation. The adhesive layer won't lose its adherent properties even when lifting and adjusting the dressing.
