When to use Mepilex Border Heel

Treatment

Mepilex® Border Heel is specifically designed to fit the heel. The five-layer absorbent foam structure effectively manages exudate and the wound environment. So you can use it in the treatment of exuding wounds such as pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, heel ulcers, traumatic wounds, and other secondary healing wounds.

Pressure ulcer prevention

Mepilex Border Heel has been proven to prevent pressure ulcers . You can apply the dressings prophylactically for at-risk patients , such as the immobile, those with poor skin perfusion and impaired skin condition, in emergency rooms, in intensive care, or before and during long surgical interventions. Scientific studies have demonstrated that Mepilex Border Heel has the ability to impact four extrinsic factors that can contribute to developing pressure ulcers: by minimising and redistributing shear, redistributing pressure, reducing friction and maintaining an optimal microclimate .

Note: using dressings as a prophylactic therapy does not replace the need for a comprehensive pressure ulcer prevention protocol.
