Breathable transparent self-adhesive film dressingMepore Film is a transparent self-adhesive film dressing ideal as secondary fixation dressing and as primary dressing for a wide range of clean wounds. Mepore Film's application system is designed for ease-of-use.
Mepore Film provides a flexible, transparent covering to protect the wound, whilst conforming to surface irregularities and body contours. The film provides a barrier to fluid strike-through and viral and bacterial contamination.
Mepore Film maintains a moist environment in the wound. Due to its high vapour permeability, Mepore Film allows excess moisture to pass away from the wound and surrounding skin.
Over 30 years of being there for youSince 1979, more than 1.5 billion original Mepore dressings have been used. Perhaps because Mepore was the first self-adhesive dressing of it's kind1. Perhaps because it's been improved and developed and is now the dressing of choice for millions of health care professionals worldwide. Mostly, we think, for one simple unsurprising reason: dependable performance. Shift in and shift out. Since day one.
