Mepilex® is a soft and highly conformable foam dressing that absorbs exudates and maintains a moist wound environment. The Safetac® technology prevents Mepilex® from sticking to the wound bed, yet adheres gently to the surrounding skin allowing easy application of secondary fixation. In addition, the Safetac® layer ensures that the dressing can be changed without damaging the wound or surrounding skin or subjecting the patient to additional pain. Mepilex® absorbs exudates effectively and ensures a low risk of maceration.
