Mepilex XT Foam Dressing

Mepilex XT Foam Dressing




Mepilex XT is designed for a wide range of exuding acute and chronic wounds in all healing stages, such as leg and foot ulcers, pressure injuries and traumatic wounds. Mepilex XT is a soft and conformable foam dressing with integrated channels, designed to transfer exudate rapidly into the absorbent foam pad. Safetac technology seals the wound edges, preventing exudate from leaking onto the surrounding skin, thus minimising the risk of maceration. 

Areas of Use

  • Exuding acute and chronic wounds in all healing stages
  • Leg and foot ulcers
  • Pressure injuries
  • Traumatic wounds

Safetac Technology:

Safetac is the original less-pain contact layer with silicone adhesion. Designed to mold 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.


  • Do not use on patients with known sensitivity to the dressing or its components.
  • In case of signs of clinical infection, consult a health care professional for adequate infection treatment.
  • Do not use Mepilex XT together with oxidising agents such as hypochlorite solutions or hydrogen peroxide.
  • Mepilex XT can be used under compression and does not need to be cut to the size of the wound
