Mepilex® Border is a versatile five-layer all-in-one bordered foam dressing available in a large range of shapes and sizes. The dressing is designed for a wide range of  wounds such as pressure ulcers, leg and foot ulcers and traumatic wounds. Mepilex Border is also clinically proven to help prevent pressure ulcers when used in conjunction with standard pressure ulcer prevention measures  .

The design includes a Safetac® interface which seals the wound edges, preventing the exudate to leak onto the surrounding skin, thus minimising the risk for maceration  . Safetac interface also minimises damaging the wound or surrounding skin or exposing the patient to additional pain at dressing changes      .

Mepilex Border can handle more exudate than other compared silicone foam dressings because of its unique material construction              . First the absorbent foam pad absorbs exudate and prevents it from returning to the wound, protecting the periwound skin     . Then the nonwoven spreading layer spreads exudate over a wide surface area within the retention layer   . As the exudate reaches retention layer with superabsorbents its being effectively managed and retained which reduces the risk of leakage and maceration   . Finally the highly breathable yet showerproof backing film enables longer wear time as well as protects the wound by stopping bacteria and viruses*          .

  • Dressings with Safetac minimise pain and damage at dressing changes       
  • Versatile all-in-one dressing for a wide range of chronic and acute wound 
  • Absorbs and retains high amounts of exudate while maintaining a moist wound environment  
  • Showerproof
