Mepilex Lite Foam Dressing

Mepilex Lite Foam Dressing




Mepilex Lite foam dressing are designed to manage non to low exuding, acute and chronic wounds. The thin profile is soft and conformable. Mepilex Lite dressings have been shown to protect fragile skin from external forces, such as friction and pressure resulting from frequent use of medical devices. The Safetac technology layer seals the wound edges, preventing the exudate from leaking onto the surrounding skin, thus minimising the risk of maceration. Mepilex comes in many sizes and can be cut to shape to fit a particular need, such as when treating wounds in a difficult-to-dress areas.

Safetac Technology:

Safetac is the original less-pain contact layer with silicone adhesion. Designed to mould softly to skin without sticking to the moist wound – so you can remove it easily without damaging the skin. That means less pain for your patients. Safetac also protects new tissue and intact skin – so wounds remain undisturbed, to support faster natural healing. Plus it seals the wound margins to protect skin from damaging leaks and maceration. The combination of less pain and less skin damage to support faster healing can also reduce the cost of treatment.
