Transparent atraumatic wound contact layer
One-sided wound contact layer that allows wound assessment without removing the dressing
Mepitel® One is a gentle one-sided wound contact layer with Safetac® – the original atraumatic contact layer proven to minimise patient pain at dressing changes
Safetac also protects new tissue and intact skin – so wounds remain undisturbed to support faster natural healing
Mepitel One has a perforated design that lets exudate pass through to a secondary absorbent dressing. It enables easy delivery of topical treatments and it allows secondary dressing changes without disturbing healing.
Mepitel One is adhesive on one side, so it’s easier for you to handle. Plus it’s transparent, so you can instantly assess healing progress without removing the contact layer.
- Transparent so you can instantly assess healing progress without removing the contact layer
- True undisturbed healing – it can remain in place for up to 14 days
- Safetac technology – minimising the risk of skin damage and pain to the patient
- Is cost-effective
- Suitable for a wide variety of indications
A recent, one multi-centre non-inferiority randomised controlled trial (RCT)
shows that with Mepitel One, significantly fewer patients experienced painful dressing changes* compared to UrgoTul**. It was also observed that with Mepitel One, more patients had healed by day 21*** than those treated with UrgoTul**
* A Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) score ≥30 mm was considered as clinically relevant pain

*** 100% re-epithelialisation

When to use Mepitel One
Mepitel One is a wound contact layer designed for the management of a wide range of exuding wounds such as painful wounds, skin tears, skin abrasions, surgical incisions, partial thickness burns, traumatic wounds, blistering, lacerations, partial and full thickness grafts, leg and foot ulcers. It can also be used as a protective layer on non-exuding wounds and on areas with fragile skin.
The open structure of Mepitel One allows, where clinically indicated, topical ointments to pass through onto the wound.
It can be applied together with Mesorb®; or for high-exuding wounds with Mextra® Superabsorbent; with Tubifast® fixation or under compression bandages. Mepitel One can also be used in conjunction with Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT).
