Mepilex Border Heel has been specifically developed to address wounds on the heel. The dressing is composed of a unique five-layer structure with Safetac technology, and has been precisely shaped to ensure the dressing conforms to the heel. Managing wounds on the heel often proves difficult and sometimes requires clinicians to custom-cut dressings. Mepilex Border Heel is the fit-for-purpose solution, providing the necessary conformability and adhesive capability to allow for greater patient mobility while reducing the need for additional time to adapt dressing.
Safetac is the adhesive layer of the dressing, which gently adheres to the skin without sticking to moist surfaces, minimizing damage to the wound and the surrounding skin by sealing the wound margins and thereby preventing exudate from escaping5. This protects the newly formed tissue and promotes natural healing benefitting both patients and healthcare organizations alike by minimizing trauma and pain1,2, allowing for optimized healing, which will result in lower costs7,8.
