Mepilex is designed for a wide range of exuding wounds such as leg and foot ulcers, pressure ulcers and traumatic wounds, e.g. skin tears and secondary healing wounds.
Mepilex consists of:
- a soft silicone wound contact layer [Safetac]
- a flexible absorbent pad of polyurethane foam
- an outer polyurethane film which is vapour permeable and waterproof
Safetac is a highly conformable dressing that absorbs exudates and maintains a moist wound environment and minimises the risk for maceration.
