Mepilex Border Heel

Mepilex® Border Heel dressing is the only five-layer foam heel dressing with proprietary Deep Defense® Technology – proven to prevent pressure ulcers when used in conjunction with other standard prevention protocols.

The dressing can also be used for managing moderate- to high- exuding wounds of the heel area. It absorbs and retains exudate  and it balances moisture properly avoiding the risk of maceration .

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 is comfortable and confirms to the patients anatomy   – you can remove it easily without damaging the skin. That means less pain for your patients.
