How is Mepilex Border Foam Dressing Designed?

Mepilex_border_lite_Features


Mepilex Border Lite Foam Dressing Features

  • Molnlycke Mepilex Border Lite Self Adherent Foam Dressing minimizes the risk of maceration as it absorbs the exudate and prevents it from leaking out.
  • It can be used as dressing for a range of low to moderate exuding wounds
  • Mepilex Dressing can remain in place for several days depending on the condition of the wound
  • Safetac Technology minimizes the potential for skin damage, irritation or allergy
  • Conformable and gentle alternative to other thin adhesive bordered dressings
  • Thin and conformable to dress wounds on feet and toes, hands and fingers
  • Mepilex Border Lite is shower proof with a film backing providing a barrier to virus and bacteria
  • Moistureproof and bacteria proof
  • Multi-layered construction to optimize fluid handling and prevent leakage
  • Maintains skin integrity

Mepilex Safetac Technology:

Safetac is a patented soft silicone adhesive technology. Dressings using Safetac technology are atraumatic both during wear and on removal. These dressings minimize trauma to the wound and the surrounding skin. Safetac technology also helps prevent maceration by sealing around the margin of the wound to protect the peri-wound skin.

How can it be lifted and adjusted without loss of adherent properties?
clifford - 9/26/2014 12:37:53 AM

Molnlycke Mepilex Border Lite Self Adherent Foam Dressing features Safetac technology. Safetac is a patented soft silicone adhesive technology. The soft silicone moves into the uneven area of the skin and adheres over a large area on the skin. On removal, no stripping of epidermal cells occurs. The soft silicone layer is therefore intact and still adherent. This in contrast to dressings with traditional adhesives where epidermal cells are being stripped off on removal, blocks the adhesiveness.
