Mepilex® Border Heel dressing is the only five-layer foam heel dressing with proprietary Deep Defense TechnologyTM – proven to prevent pressure ulcers when used in conjunction with other standard prevention protocols. 1 2 3 4
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 6 7 and it balances moisture properly avoiding the risk of maceration 8
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 8 – you can remove it easily without damaging the skin 10 11. That means less pain for your patients 12.
