Mepilex Heel is an absorbent soft silicone dressing, shaped for heel wounds and minimises trauma to the wound and pain to the patient at dressing changes. The Safetac technology prevents Mepilex Heel from sticking to the wound bed yet adheres gently to the surrounding skin allowing easy application of secondary fixation. Mepilex Heel absorbs effectively and ensures a low risk of maceration.
Mepilex Heel conforms well to the heel preventing exudate from pooling and causing maceration. Mepilex Heel is ideal for most shapes or sizes of feet.
Areas of use
Excuding wounds on the heel or malleolus:
Mepilex Heel is an absorbent soft silicone dressing. It consists of:
- a soft silicone wound contact layer (Safetac ).
- a flexible absorbent pad of polyurethane foam.
- an outer film which is vapour permeable and waterproof.
Safetac is a patented soft silicone adhesive technology. On the wound, Safetac assures non-sticking and minimal trauma on removal even in critical situations when the exudate starts to dry out. On the skin, a dressing with Safetac has gentle but secure adhesion with no epidermal stripping or pain on removal.
