Wound contact layers – Mepilex Transfer

Effective and comfortable exudate transfer dressing

To maintain a moist wound environment, Mepilex® Transfer allows the exudate to move vertically into a secondary absorbent pad. This way, the risk for maceration is minimized. To further minimize the risk, the Safetac® adhesive layer seals around the wound edges, preventing the exudate from leaking onto the surrounding skin. 

Minimizes pain and trauma at dressing changes

Transfers exudate away from the wound, minimizing the risk of maceration

Convenient and conformable for difficult-to-dress wounds, can be cut to suit various wound shapes

Promotes patient comfort; thin and comfortable to wear

When to use Mepilex Transfer

Mepilex Transfer is designed for a wide range of exuding wounds, such as fungating tumours, epidermolysis bullosa (EB), donor sites, and venous leg ulcers. Mepilex Transfer allows the exudate to move into a secondary absorbent pad, such as Mesorb® or Mextra® Superabsorbent. The Safetac layer seals around the wound edges, preventing the exudate to leak onto the surrounding skin, minimizing the risk for maceration. It also ensures less damage to the wound and skin at dressing changes. Mepilex Transfer can be cut to suit various wound shapes and locations. Safetac is an adhesive interface that helps to minimize pain to patients and trauma to wounds.

Use Mepilex Transfer:

  • For medium-to-high exuding wounds
  • For fungating tumours, epidermolysis bullosa (EB), donor sites or venous leg ulcers
  • As a protective layer on non-exuding wounds and/or large areas with fragile skin
  • To provide less painful dressing changes for your patients
