Wound contact layer
Gentle two-sided wound contact layer – minimize pain for your patients
Mepitel® is a gentle two-sided wound contact layer with Safetac® – the contact layer designed to minimize pain and trauma at dressing change.
Safetac also protects new tissue and intact skin, so wounds remain undisturbed, to support faster healing.
Mepitel has an open mesh structure that allows exudate to pass through into a secondary absorbent dressing and enables the delivery of topical treatments. Mepitel allows secondary dressings to be changed without disturbing the wound bed. The dressing reduces the need for frequent primary dressing changes and allows secondary dressing changes without disturbing healing.
- Undisturbed healing - Mepitel can remain in place for up to 14 days
- Mepitel is clinically proven to enable faster healing with less pain and cost, compared to silver sulfadiazine
- Doesn’t leave residue and maintains functional qualities over time
- Mepitel's transparency allows you to assess healling progress without removing the dressing
