Mepilex Border includes a porous gel that is the first material to contact with the wound. This gel is stuck to the above absorbent material and will create a moist environment within the wound bed. The absorbent pad above wicks away the wound discharge intersperses the moisture throughout the foam. The backing material will protect the wound from external infectious material, yet allows the wound ample air circulation. With supplemental moisture along with and a means of air circulation, an ideal 'climate' is created to promote healing.

The Safetac layer ensures that the dressing can be changed without damaging the wound or surrounding skin.

Based on your history
- All good
WRAPPING A WOUND RATHER THAN BEING ABLE TO BANDAGE IT IS QUITE DIFFICULT AND TIME CONSUMING, THESE MAKE LIFE MUCH EASIER AND A LOT LESS STRESSFUL
- Holds a lot of drainage
- stays on, no pain when being removed
Will NEVER order again from them.
