Pressure ulcer prevention
Mepilex® Border Sacrum can add to your HAPU prevention program by redistributing shear forces, reducing friction, redistributing pressure and balancing the microclimate during wear time. Here’s how it works.
Five layers of control
Retention, spreading and absorption layers will help in maintaining an optimal moisture level, reducing the risk of breakdowns. These layers are critical in dissipating shear and redistributing pressure.
Mölnlycke Health Care’s unique Safetac® interface resides closest to the skin. For pressure ulcer prevention, its elasticity dissipates shear forces and allows for repositioning of the dressing after skin assessment. Dressings with Safetac have been proven to minimize pain to patients during dressing changes and does not cause skin reactions.
