Other Mepilex product(s)
The Mepilex Self-Adherent Foam Dressing, by Molnlycke, is an absorbent dressing that treats a variety of wounds as a primary application. The dressing uses Safetac technology, a special adhesive that reduces the amount of irritation to the skin and healing wound tissues when removed. This is one of the more popular high-end dressings, especially among those treating leg ulcers due to pressure or diabetes.
These absorbent dressings are designed to handle wound severity ranging from low to medium exudating wounds, including post-op wounds or diabetic wounds. They are also good for both chronic and acute wounds and conform well to the wound bed. To get a better fit, Mepilex can also be cut. The dressing peels off softly, meaning less stress on the skin and a better healing experience for both patient and caregiver.
Look to Tubifast Tubular Retention Dressing for a secondary wrap over Mepilex.
