Mepilex is a soft and very conformable foam dressing that absorbs wound fluid (exudate) but keeps your wound sufficiently moist.
The unique and patented Safetac® adhesive makes sure that your dressing can be changed without damaging your wound or skin around it. This makes the dressing change as pain free as possible and also makes sure that the skin around your wound stays dry and healthy. If you want to learn more about Safetac click here.
