Its five-layer absorbent foam structure with , effectively absorbs and retains exudate, and maintains a moist wound environment.

Mepilex Border Tailored for the heel
Mepilex Border Heel has been specifically developed to address wounds on the heel. The dressing is composed of a unique five-layer structure including unique technology and has been precisely shaped to ensure the dressing conforms to the heel. Managing wounds on the heel often proves difficult and sometimes requires clinicians to custom-cut dressings. Mepilex Border Heel is the fit-for-purpose solution, providing the necessary conform-ability and adhesive capability to allow for greater patient mobility while reducing the need for additional time to adapt dressing.
Safetac is the adhesive layer of the dressing, which gently adheres to the skin without sticking to moist surfaces, minimising damage to the wound and the surrounding skin by sealing the wound margins thereby preventing exudate from escaping. This protects the newly formed tissue and promotes natural healing benefitting both patients and healthcare organisations alike by minimising trauma and pain, allowing for optimised healing, which will result in lower costs
