Mepilex Border Heel 18.5cm x 24cm/7.3in x 9.5in
Five-layer foam dressing for pressure ulcer prevention
Mepilex Border Heel dressing is the only five-layer foam heel dressing with proprietary Deep Defense Technology– proven to prevent pressure ulcers when used in conjunction with other standard prevention protocols
This all-in-one dressing design also creates an optimal healing environment for managing moderate- to high-exuding wounds on the heel. It effectively absorbs and retains exudate and it balances moisture properly avoiding the risk of maceration .
This recently-launched enhanced design includes new handling tabs and thicker borders, allowing easier application and patient checking. The heel shape has been refined for good coverage of the high-risk heel area and the malleoli.
The enhanced design still includes Safetac – the original less-pain contact layer with silicone adhesion. So the dressing moulds softly to skin without sticking to the moist wound – you can remove it easily without damaging the skin . That means less pain for your patients .
Proven to prevent pressure ulcers – when used with other standard prevention protocols Proprietary Deep Defense Technology protects against the extrinsic forces - pressure, shear and friction; and manages micro-climate, the key factors responsible for pressure ulcers
