When to use Mepilex Border?
Mepilex Border is an all-in-one foam dressing, designed for a wide range of exuding chronic and acute wounds as well as secondary healing wounds. The soft, conformable dressing maintains a moist wound environment, and effectively absorbs and retains exudates, which gives the wound an optimal environment to healing. A wide range of sizes makes Mepilex Border the solution for small to large wounds- even those located on challenging areas of the body.
Mepilex Border can also be used as part of a prophylactic regimen to help prevent skin damage such as pressure ulcers6. Mepilex Border has been demonstrated to act on four extrinsic factors that can contribute to the development of pressure ulcers: to redistribute shear, redistribute pressure, reduce friction, and to maintain an optimal microclimate7,8,9. Mepilex Border can be repositioned after skin assessment.
Use Mepilex Border:
- For optimal exudate management – excellent fluid handling capacity and excellent retention of fluids
- For chronic wounds like pressure ulcers and diabetic foot ulcers
- To prevent pressure ulcers development
- To maintain a moist wound environment
