Mepilex Border Heel Foam Dressing

Mepilex Border Heel Foam Dressing




Shaped for success

Unlike other dressings, the proprietary Mepilex Border Sacrum and Mepilex Border Heel are the only dressings with Deep Defense technology, providing an optimal balance of strength and flexibility. This not only allows the dressing to provide optimal protection against shear in combination with other extrinsic factors, but also maintain its protective properties even with the absorption of sweat.

The design also creates an optimal healing environment for managing moderate- to high-exuding wounds. It effectively absorbs and retains exudate and it balances moisture properly avoiding the risk of maceration.

The enhanced design still includes Safetac – the original less-pain contact layer with silicone adhesion. So the dressing molds 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.

  • 22 x 23cm
  • Reduces risk of maceration
  • Mepilex Border with Safetac technology minimises pain during dressing change
  • Excellent fluid-handling capacity and retention
  • Proprietary Deep Defense Technology protects against the extrinsic forces - pressure, shear and friction; and manages micro-climate, the key factors responsible for pressure injuries

When to use Mepilex Border Heel:

Treatment - Mepilex Border Heel, when used for treatment, effectively absorbs and retains exudate and maintains a moist wound environment. The Safetac technology layer seals the wound edges, prevents exudate leakage onto the surrounding skin, thus minimising the risk of maceration. The Safetac technology layer allows the dressing to be changed without damaging the wound or surrounding skin, or exposing the patient to additional pain.

  • Minimises pain and trauma at dressing changes
  • Medial and lateral malleolus coverage to provide maximum protection
  • Can remain in place for several days
  • Can be adjusted without losing its adherent properties

Pressure Injury Prevention - Mepilex Border Heel is an all-in-one foam dressing shaped to fit the heel and protect the areas around the heel, Achilles and bilateral malleoli. When used for prevention it will aid in protecting the skin from damage caused by pressure, shear and friction. The Safetac technology layer protects the skin by maintaining optimal positioning and by limiting friction and shear at the patient-dressing interface . The Safetac technology layer allows for repositioning of the dressing after skin inspection.

  • Handling tabs for easier skin checks
  • Slightly thicker border for better handling and stay-on-ability
  • Self-Adherent - no secondary fixation needed
  • Shaped to fit heels - no need to cut or adapt
