With Safetac, Mepilex Lite can be removed with a reduced risk of trauma to the wound or surrounding skin. Mepilex Lite is the ideal choice for all low-exuding wounds. For example low-exuding, chronic wounds, such as diabetic wounds or leg ulcers. Mepilex Lite is the only dressing that is clinically proven to treat or even prevent radiotherapy-induced skin reactions.

Mepilex Lite can easily be cut to fit an individual wound and is highly conformable. This makes it ideal for difficult-to-dress areas like armpits or under the breast. Mepilex Lite is a multipurpose dressing giving the patient less risk of trauma to the wound and less painful dressing changes. Use together with our Tubifast™ fixation. For medium-exuding wounds, see Mepilex®.

Use Mepilex Lite:

  • For low-exuding wounds
  • Wide range of acute and chronic wounds, such as foot ulcer, pressure ulcer, partial thickness burn, radiation skin reaction and epidermolysis bullosa (EB)
  • Less painful and less stressful care for your patients10
